i am virat & i work for ***** as a senior research analyst in the petrochemicals domain. I am currently working on an internal study on global cracker profiling. I would like to understand about the current global cracker scenario and have an understanding of the future trends with regards to crackers located across the globe.
Looking in specific on the following points:
1)exhaustive list of crackers and location â na, la, emea and apac
2) feedstock base in each of the crackers.
3) technology used in each of the crackers.
4) products under consideration: ethylene, propylene and butadiene.
Looking for experts in the field of petrochemicals.
Thanks and regards,

Weapon Oil Market
I am an executive at a specialty chemicals company. We are currently conducting research on the weapon oils market. We would like to speak with an expert regarding the aging and chemistry characteristics of weapon oils. We would also like to learn more about what substances are used, in what volumes, how often they need to be replaced, the aging process, and types of failure+2 Other Responses
Hi zintro expert,
the zintro blog needs you! we are looking for expert opinions on the news mentioned below and would like to hear from you within the next couple of days.
While weâd love your thoughts, we realize that your time is valuable, so here are a couple of things you need to know before deciding whether or not to participate:
- replies should be brief â about 1-2 paragraphs and include your full name
- participation is voluntary no payment will be involved
- if chosen, youâll be named in the post and weâll include a link to your zintro profile which will generate more visitors for you
wondering what the post would look like? Here is a sample: http://blog.Zintro.Com/2012/01/16/keystone-xl-pipeline-pros-and-cons/
hereâs the topic on which weâd love your thoughts:
the catalysis center for energy innovation (ccei), a u.S. Department of energy-energy frontier research center led by the university of delaware, has announced a two-year program with exxonmobil to research renewable chemicals from biomass. The research will focus on converting lignocellulosic (non-food) biomass such as trees and grasses to polymers that are identical to existing petrochemical products. Research strategies to replace fossil fuel feedstocks for polymers have initially focused on new chemicals derived from biomass that have the same function but new structure. However, functional-replacement chemicals for new polymers frequently have physical properties that can make processing challenging and can be expensive to develop into new products.The cceis research focuses on using high throughput and low cost thermochemical (non-biological) catalysts to yield direct-replacement chemicals. You can mix our renewable chemicals with the petroleum-based material and the consumer will not be able to tell the difference, says paul dauenhauer, professor, of the ccei and the university of massachusetts amherst. Bio-derived direct-replacement chemicals can be directly blended at any ratio with existing petrochemical products.
What are your thoughts about the upcoming research?
Getting your name and expert opinion published on our blog is a great marketing opportunity. If interested, please send us your response via znotes within a couple of days. Donât forget to include your full name.
If you have any questions, please let us know.

Global Catalyst Market
Global catalyst market - malaysia
1. Cost structure of catalysts – used in the petrochemical refining
2. Supply base in malaysia for the following
a. Supply of catalysts
b. Change outs
c. Precious metal recovery
3. Ideal ppi/indices for tracking catalyst prices or indications
4. Is change overs and precious metal recovery specific to o&g companies alone? How are companies procuring catalysts? Do they also get involved in contracting with change over and precious metal recovery suppliers? Do other companies have long term contracts for catalysts?
5. How much does o&g contribute to the overall catalyst demand?
6. Key manufacturing hubs of catalysts
