Increasing environmental awareness on part of product manufacturers and the desire to reduce dependency on oil are the leading drivers behind the US$2.4 bln global market for biorenewable chemicals (BRC) in 2010. This steadily growing market has experienced a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.8%, a growth trend that is going to increase as the world resumes a more normal production page and new bio-based chemicals such as bioethylene come to market. By 2015 the BRC market will be worth US$6.8 bln, a CAGR of 22.8% between 2010 and 2015. The largest region for BRC sales continues to be the U.S., which captured 21.6% of the market in 2009.

Engineering thermoplastics offer high strength and light weight, high-temperature, corrosion and chemical resistance, as well as desirable electrical properties and design flexibility. This makes them suitable for diverse applications- from electronic systems and construction materials to medical products and consumer appliances. The largest markets for engineering polymers include automotive, electrical/electronic and industrial products. To know more about consumption of engineering thermoplastics by type and region, various blends in the market, environmental issues , disposal, recycling and others, read
Hard hit by the global economic slowdown in 2009, the European polymer blends and alloys market is on the upswing again. The uptrend can be attributed mainly to high growth potential in Eastern Europe, particularly for electronics applications. The sector is estimated to have earned revenues of Euro 346 mln in 2009 and estimates this to reach Euro 453 mln in 2016. Read more in
China has updated its chemical registration and evaluation rules. This will affect all production activities, import and export of the new chemicals in China. It would expand on China's existing regime for new chemical substances by increasing the volume and complexity of data that must be supplied to the authorities before import or production. The manufacture, import or use of a new chemical substance that had not been properly notified is expressly prohibited. Read more in
A new research allows for nanotube networks to be used to make transistors as well as flexible integrated circuits. Development of a new production method could make it possible to manufacture superior-quality, flexible, electronic products at an extremely affordable price. The groundbreaking method relies on growing the nanotubes in atmospheric pressure gas and gathering them with a filter. To know more about the quick and effortless method of making high-performance, thin-film transistors on plastic substrate, read
Nanosilver finds application as a coating for electrical appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners and computer keyboards because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Nanosilver can damage the environment. There exists some evidence that free multi walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT), if inhaled, could be harmful like asbestos. European ministers have demanded for a ban. Read more in
An industrial scale production process has been developed for manufacture of pure carbon-nanotube fibers that could lead to revolutionary advances in materials science, power distribution and nanoelectronics. This has been possible with the discovery of the "ultimate" solvent for all kinds of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). New three-dimensional shapes can now be made from CNTs using a new manufacturing process called "capillary forming". The new miniature shapes have the potential to harness the exceptional mechanical, thermal, electrical, and chemical properties of carbon nanotubes in a scalable fashion. Read more in
Coatings that enhance the barrier properties of bio-based polymers and improve the recyclability of conventional packaging materials for dried food and pharmaceutical blister packs are being explored. Especially suitable for food and pharmaceutical packaging, the coating offers a new method for manufacturing fully recyclable, thin, light and air-tight packaging materials. Read more in
