Global demand for consumer goods is at an all-time high. Surging populations around the world — combined with a trend toward more plastic usage per capita in less developed countries — suggest that demand for these goods will stay at record levels for the foreseeable future.
Tying it all together: Nearly all consumer goods have foundations in the chemicals industry. From the plastics that keep our food safe to the insulation in our homes to the lubricants that keep our cars running smoothly, the chemicals industry supports the developing world in its ever-evolving desire for a safe, sustainable and affordable society. As demand for consumer goods continues to grow, so does the demand for olefins, polyolefins, commodity chemicals, specialty chemicals and aromatics.
Worldwide demand creates a global market, limited only by the cost of logistics. As feedstock prices and transportation costs fluctuate around the globe, the projects you are considering must acknowledge and respond to those changes. This dynamic chemicals market requires your manufacturing operation to be nimble and responsive to market conditions. We are here to be your partner in that effort, offering innovative techniques and flexible engineer-procure-construct (EPC) solutions to help you grow along with demand.
Innovative and Sustainable Projects
The products delivered by the chemicals industry, including plastics, are vital to the longevity, health and well-being of society. With an increased focus on sustainability in the industry, the need for chemical producers to introduce projects that promote a more circular economy has risen. Society needs plastics, and the environmental cost of switching to plastic alternatives is often greater than the cost of using plastics themselves; therefore, the solution isn’t the elimination of plastics, but rather a transition to a more circular plastic economy. We are focused on helping you understand these intricacies and engineer sustainable, long-term and renewable solutions to reduce your environmental impact.
Predictable and Competitive Project Solutions
Our team is focused on construction-driven engineering and has extensive experience implementing a spectrum of proven process technologies. We help you find the right project solutions to meet your objectives. Our predictable and competitive project cost estimates are developed through collaboration with your team, both in the office and on site, and integration in the earliest stages of front-end engineering. We tackle project challenges with accountability and provide solutions quickly to keep your project moving forward.
Flexible EPC Execution Options
We deliver the right EPC project execution strategy for any scenario by offering multiple construction options. Your project could benefit from our two self-perform construction arms, our decades of construction experience managing right-sized subcontracts, or the multiple successful joint-venture EPC projects we’ve completed. We work with you to select the best construction execution approach from these options within the constraints of your project.
