Polymer-based products constitute about fifty percent of a modern airplane’s total weight. Petrochemical materials are used for building modules of the International Space Station and latest design robots. In just half a century consumption of polymers increased by more than an order of magnitude.
And yet producers are already facing a number of threats and challenges, including tightening environmental regulations, depleting crude oil reserves, and advancements in biotechnology. What would be the role of petrochemicals in the future global energy landscape the next thirty years?
Andrey Kostin, Director of Russian think-tank RUPEC will deliver a keynote presentation on petrochemicals of tomorrow based on the exclusive study made by Rupec. The research is to answer what are the future new markets for polymer products?
