  • ‘Peak oil’ may coincide with ‘peak plastic’ as circular economy undermines demand for virgin petrochemicals
  • Lower oil production will impact availability of chemical feedstock
  • Expect shift to renewables to impact chemicals demand from automotive
  • Why China’s new five year plan meeting is as important as the US elections
  • Lockdowns are not the best way out of the pandemic
