DHAHRAN

Honeywell, a pioneer in automation control, will provide its IIoT-based Connected Performance Services (CPS) offering to Al Waha Petrochemicals Company to explore possibilities of maximising its propylene production.Al Waha Honeywell technology

Waha Honeywell technologyThe implementation falls in line with Honeywell’s ongoing commitment to support Saudi Arabia with its diversifications plans and Saudi Vision 2030, the company said.

CPS is a key part of Honeywell’s Connected Plant initiative that helps manufacturers leverage the IIoT to improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of operations across a single plant or several plants across an enterprise. CPS integrates Honeywell UOP’s process and service expertise into the Connected Plant cloud platform.

Asia PX

SINGAPORE (ICIS)–Asia’s paraxylene prices are expected to be on a stable-to-bullish trend in the near-term on firm market fundamentals and bullish trading sentiment.

Prices are presently at a 19-month high with the start of spot trades for March and April shipments. Discussion levels have been moving up, diverging from the range-bound movement in crude oil futures at the $55-56/bbl range on Monday morning.

Bids for March-shipment PX cargoes were at $923-925/tonne CFR (cost and freight) Taiwan/China in early trade, against offers at $929/tonne CFR China/Taiwan.

For April-shipment cargoes, bids were at $931-932/tonne CFR Taiwan/China, while offers stood at $938/tonne CFR Taiwan/China.

The last time prices were at these levels was in June-July 2015, during the crude oil rout that started in the fourth quarter of 2014.Asia PX

US plastics industry urges caution on renegotiating NAFTA -US plastics industry NAFTA

US plastics industry NAFTA

Jessica Jordan The U.S. plastics industry has a trade surplus with both Mexico and Canada, complicating discussions about changes to NAFTA.US plastics industry NAFTA

On the campaign trail, President Donald Trump called the North American Free Trade Agreement “one of the worst things to happen to manufacturing in the United States.” Since the election, his top aides have suggested renegotiating it will be an early priority.

But for the plastics industry, reopening NAFTA could carry significant risk.

That’s because the U.S. plastics industry, in sharp contrast with much of the rest of manufacturing, has a trade surplus with Mexico.

Trade groups like the Plastics Industry Association say the surplus is “directly attributable” to NAFTA, which it said “has benefited American companies and American workers greatly ever since it entered into force.”US plastics industry NAFTA

The head of the association, Bill Carteaux, said in January that concerns about risks to its export position were so high the group would be “fighting a rear-guard action on trade issues, like doing our best to keep the White House from unwinding NAFTA.”

Tough polymer nanocomposite film provides flexible energy solution – polymer nanocomposite film

polymer nanocomposite film

Polymer dielectric materials that possess high energy density and extraordinary mechanical properties could be useful for flexible energy storage devices that prove highly beneficial in modern electronics. polymer nanocomposite film

However, the energy density of polymeric capacitors is governed by the dielectric property, which is relatively low (dielectric constant, εr ˜ 2-5) and falls significantly short of rising demands in advanced applications. Reporting in Nanotechnology, we demonstrate a nanoparticle-polymer nanocomposite with a dielectric constant an order of magnitude higher than the best dielectric polymer currently available.polymer nanocomposite film

Polymeric capacitors are well suited for short-term energy storage and are readily integrated with devices due to their low weight, easy shape forming properties and flexibility.polymer nanocomposite film

Global Bioenergies finalized the acquisition of Syngip – Global Bioenergies Syngip

Global Bioenergies finalized the acquisition of Syngip B.V. at the close of its extraordinary shareholders’ meeting last Thursday.Global Bioenergies Syngip

Global Bioenergies Syngip Established in the Netherlands since 2014, Syngip develops a process to convert gaseous carbon sources into light olefins.

Its process is based on a proprietary micro-organism capable of metabolising carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO) found in a wide range of low-cost and abundant streams, such as the industrial waste emissions of steel mills.Global Bioenergies Syngip

Syngip’s technology is now mature enough to allow the implementation of metabolic pathways leading to light olefins, and in a first instance to isobutene.

Now part of the Global Bioenergies group, the entire Syngip team will be assigned to developing the third-generation Isobutene process.

Frédéric Pâques, Chief Operations Officer of Global Bioenergies said “There are obvious synergies between these technologies.
