ARC Strategy Report: The Sustainability Future for Energy and Chemicals

ARC Advisory Group conducted research to gain a better understanding of the current state of sustainability and “green initiatives” in the chemical and energy industries. Research showed that:

 

  • 90% of global energy and chemical companies have sustainability initiatives in place
  • Energy companies are focused on the transition to lower carbon future
  • Chemical companies are focused on creating more sustainable products

Download this report and learn where companies are focusing their efforts, what challenges they face and – ultimately – how they believe digitalization and other technologies can advance their sustainability initiatives.

The Science Behind Optical Gas Imaging

Optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras can help you detect industrial gases quickly, accurately, and safely - without shutting down systems. OGI cameras can scan and survey areas that are hard to reach with traditional measurement tools. OGI cameras can also detect leaks from a safe distance, displaying these invisible gases as clouds of smoke.

Operators' view on environmental compliance: Road map or roadblock?

"Near-zero" emission control of plant pollutants is achievable through innovative technologies. But is the petrochemical industry ready to commit and pursue long-term, environmentally oriented and sustainable policies? A white paper series analyzes the dilemma challenging petrochemical companies in the decision-making for economic growth and sustainability goals. The series investigates the environmental performance quandary from three perspectives: government regulatory agencies, petrochemical operating companies, and environmental controls system technology providers. Specifically, this white paper addresses the challenges faced by operating companies to forge a road map to balancing profitability, environmental performance and sustainability.

Europe’s Downstream Construction Plans and Move Towards a Sustainable Future

The downstream markets in Europe and Asia have stark differences. Europe—especially Western Europe—has a mature refining and petrochemical production network. Many plants were constructed dozens of years ago. However, the region is making concerted efforts to boost sustainability, including mandating clean-fuels production and increasing energy efficiency, while mitigating plant emissions and waste.

The region is building additional production capacity, but project numbers vary significantly between Western Europe and Eastern Europe, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This whitepaper details major downstream oil and gas initiatives in Europe, along with capital expenditures in downstream project construction.
