The shale gas revolution has triggered changes in the chemical raw material industry

according to the Nikkei, many chemical enterprises in the world are stepping up technological development and preparing to use new shale gas to replace oil to produce low-cost chemical raw materials. According to statistics, the world's recoverable shale gas reserves reach 2018 trillion cubic meters. Whether we can master the use of natural gas to produce chemical raw materials in the future has become a key factor leading the world's chemical industry

Asahi Kasei company of Japan recently announced that it has made 1.5% progress in the production of synthetic fibers and resins using natural gas Breakthrough progress has been made in the development of range technology, and it is expected to achieve mass production by 2017. With the acceleration of shale gas development, the world natural gas price this year has fallen by half compared with last year

Asahi Kasei company of Japan has successfully developed the technology of using mineral catalyst to separate acrylonitrile, the intermediate raw material of resin, from natural gas, and its quality is no less than that of petroleum products. The company plans to build resin plants in North America, which mainly produces shale gas, and Southeast Asia, which mainly produces natural gas, with an annual output of hundreds of thousands of tons by 2017. It is reported that with the increase of the world's population, the demand for fiber and resin used in the clothing and home appliance industries will increase at a rate of 3% per year, and Asahi Chemical Co., Ltd. ranks second in the market share of this industry in the world

European and American chemical enterprises have made progress in using shale gas to produce ethylene. Mobil and Dow chemical companies also plan to build ethylene sensors in North America and Southeast Asia in the next five years to measure the distance that the beam has moved
