PODCAST: How data can help chemicals towards a low carbon future

Will Beacham


BARCELONA (ICIS)–Chemical companies can harness new sources of data which will help them make strategic decisions on new business models for a less carbon-intensive future.

  • Chemical companies need analysis of short and long-term market drivers
  • Data and analytics can forecast long-term supply & demand trends
  • Decision-making increasingly complex, marrying net zero with the need to remain profitable
  • New sources of data can help companies measure Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions
  • There are no agreed standards for Life Cycle Assessments
  • Emerging green premiums for low carbon products
  • Huge volatility in prices, margins for recyclers
  • Recycled polymer markets behave differently to virgin

In this podcast, Will Beacham interviews ICIS senior editor for recycling, Mark Victory; ICIS head of commercial strategy – sustainability, Soline Guérineau; and ICIS head of commercial strategy – chemicals, Redwan Hoque.
