With the transition to a net-zero economy, as well as an intensifying pressure from regulators and consumers to reduce & replace the use of petroleum-based chemicals and products, the search for new sources of raw materials to replace or incorporate into existing system is revealing a number of greener alternatives.
Companies are exploring innovative technologies to increase the availability of sustainable feedstocks, including carbon capture & utilization, biomass, HVO, sugarcane, beet, corn, industrial hemp, closing the loop by using plastic waste stream, & many more!
Toyota Tsusho, Mitsui Chemicals and Neste collaborate to start Japan's first production of renewable plastics from 100% bio-based hydrocarbons.

The shift to alternative and sustainable feedstock must take into account a number of factors, including the global value chain for developing new feedstock, new chemical transformation route, and processing technologies, as well as approach for reducing the amount of materials used.
Chemical companies like SABIC, Dow and INEOS are using Bio-based naphtha to blend in their petrochemical crackers as raw material for the manufacture of chemical/monomer intermediates. The mass balance approach is a tool to increase the share of renewable content used as a feedstock, & it is a valuable way to make biobased feedstocks more accessible.
Join us and our expert speakers at CMT’s Sustainable Feedstocks for the future of Chemicals & Plastics on 29 July at 14:30 CEST (GMT +2). They will share insights on the various sustainable feedstocks technology innovations, sourcing model, progress & commercialization plans.
