—ZeaChem Signs Deal For Poplar Feedstock “” Cellulosic fuels and chemicals firm ZeaChem has signed an agreement under which Oregon’s GreenWood Tree Farm Fund will supply hybrid poplar feedstock for its first commercial cellulosic biorefinery. The facility, expected to have a capacity of 25 million gal per year, will be located in Boardman, Ore. Using GreenWood’s residual fiber and local agricultural residues as feedstocks, ZeaChem says, will cost half as much as using Brazilian sugarcane. /articles/89/i21/ZeaChem-Signs-Deal-Poplar-Feedstock.html 20110523 Concentrates 89 21 /magazine/89/8921.html ZeaChem Signs Deal For Poplar Feedstock cellulosic ethanol, biomass, waste, feedstocks con Business Melody M.Bomgardner business Hybrid poplar trees will provide cellulose for a ZeaChem biorefinery.

—Agrium signs feedstock deal “” Agrium has signed a memorandum of understanding with Northern Lights Partnership that may lead to "a new, stable, long-term, low-cost source of raw materials" for the firm's Redwater, Alberta, fertilizer operations. NLP plans to build a bitumen upgrader and gasification facility adjacent to the Agrium facility that would supply hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and sulfur when it opens in 2010. Agrium would use the hydrogen to replace natural gas as the feedstock for its nitrogen fertilizers; sulfur would be used to make phosphate fertilizers and ammonium sulfate. /articles/84/i30/Agrium-signs-feedstock-deal.html 20060724 Concentrates 84 30 /magazine/84/8430.html Agrium signs feedstock deal con bus environment Agrium signs feedstock deal Chemical & Engineering News Agrium signs feedstock deal Agrium signs feedstock deal

—Low-carbon processes advance in Europe “Companies explore sustainable feedstock options in transition to a circular economy” Three recent initiatives demonstrate the diverse methods chemical companies are exploring to reduce the carbon footprint of the products they make in Europe. DSM and Neste have formed a partnership to replace a “significant” portion of the fossil fuel used to make some of DSM’s polymers with feedstock Neste derives from waste plastics, oils, and fats. The partners aim to substitute several thousand metric tons (t) of feedstock with fossil-derived feedstock in the near term. The chemically recycled and biobased materials used will be certified by ISCC, an international sustainability certification system for feedstocks. The partners say the initiative is a response to consumer demand for more sustainable and circular products.

—BASF will make nylon feedstock “” Under a supply agreement with Swiss polymer maker EMS-Chemie, BASF is building a cyclododecanone plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany. EMS converts cyclododecanone into laurolactam, an intermediate for nylon-12, at a Japanese joint venture plant with Ube Industries. BASF says it makes the cyclododecanone in a groundbreaking three-stage process, as opposed to the customary five-stage route.
