Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector: Carbon Capture

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

In our recently-published "Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector" report, we introduced carbon capture as a key technology that will allow multiple industrial sectors to decarbonize their operations by capturing CO₂ emissions from point-sources. In this report, we will look at the cost of carbon capture using multiple configurations, as well as the regulatory framework support needed to support the adoption of carbon capture in the industrial sector.

Connecting the Dots: The Impact of Industrial and Power Decarbonization on Gas Demand

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

Natural gas is often touted as the fuel that will power the ongoing energy transition. Several energy companies such as Shell, Total, and Qatar Petroleum have committed to expand their gas and LNG businesses, with the latter even quitting OPEC in its pursuit for gas. However, as industrial demand sectors such as power, steel manufacturing, paper, residential heating, gradually move towards disruptive, low carbon solutions such as hydrogen, heat pumps, and electric heating, the outlook for gas needs to be revisited. In this report, we connect the dots between the various pieces of the broader energy system, and analyse the collateral impact of emerging technologies on the global gas and LNG markets in the near future.

Electronic Materials: The Emerging Solutions

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

Demand for 5G electronics and the emergence of the internet of things have created new demand for materials that offer higher performance but are cheap enough to enable rollout of millions of new devices. This report will identify new materials technologies in polymers for electronics and thermal management, as well as the technology developers behind these efforts, and pick winners for commercialization.

Scouting Innovations for Corrosion's Tough Problems

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

Corrosion remains perhaps the most persistent challenge we face in the materials industry. New sustainability regulations are making this even more challenging, by pushing out chrome 6 and limiting the use of solvents. This report will scout early stage technologies, start-ups, and identify corporate approaches to tackling the corrosion challenge.

Emerging Materials Opportunities for the Apparel Industry

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

The apparel industry is a huge market for polymers, coatings, dyes, and more, but the low cost tolerance and fast development cycles make materials innovation a challenge. However, there are increasing demands for sustainable products, differentiation, more functional clothing, and cleaner manufacturing. All this creates new opportunities for materials innovation; this report will highlight the most promising areas.
