Rising Environmental Concerns Bring Green Solvents into the Spotlight as Potential Substitutes for Conventional Solvents

Ubiquitous need for solvents in a wide range of industrial processes coupled with the growing popularity of green/bio solvents to address environmental concerns is poised to drive the global Solvents market to exceed 33.4 million metric tons by 2024. A solvent is a liquid formulation that is capable of suspending, dissolving or extracting various substances, without influencing any chemical change to the subject material and the end-product. Solvents function on the principle of 'like dissolves like' and are used for separating, cleaning and processing of materials.Solvents are primarily used for forming a solution by dissolving the solute and bring out properties of some substances. These solutions are selected or applied on the basis of numerous factors including safety and health and environmental effects, along with inherent features such as dissolving strength, evaporation and viscosity rates, flammability, and toxicity. To suffice various end-use level requirements, solv…

Essential Role of Micro-CHPs in Smart Energy Strategies Drives Global Demand for Cogeneration Equipment

Increasing adoption of microCHP systems, spiraling electricity prices, manufacturer focus on technically advanced equipment, favorable policy scenario, and growing need for flexibility are poised to drive the global market for Cogeneration Equipment in terms of revenues from annual equipment installations to exceed US$37 billion by 2024.
