Several future trends are colliding or combining to create significant change for the chemicals industry, and many of the established players are becoming increasingly aware that tomorrow's industry will look very different from how it does today. This short animation by PwC's Strategy& looks at the changes ahead, foreseeing some degree of break-up of the traditional specialties, and the emergence of a number of new ways to play. To be successful in the future, industry players will need to be much clearer about how they create value for customers in ways that their competitors cannot, and build the capabilities that will allow them to win over time.

● We explain topics simply. So Subscribe if you want to learn while being entertained. ✔ Please like the video and comment if you enjoyed - it helps a lot! ▶ If you want a question answered then ask in the comments and we may make a video about it! About the video: You may have traveled a lot and wondered why you get more of one currency when you exchange it for another. If so, you have witnessed exchange rates in action, but do you know how they work? Watch the video to find out what exchange rates are, how to convert between them and the different systems which determine a currencies exchange rate. Historically the gold standard system had been used, which fixed currency to a select value of gold, held in a vault. The three main systems are the floating, managed and fixed exchange rate systems. The floating system has minimal government intervention, using supply and demand to determine the exchange rate. The managed exchange rate is allowed to be within a permitted band and a fixed exchange rate is usually pegged to a currency with the interest of being competitive in the international market. The video explains this in more detail and with helpful picture to guide you through the subject.

A chemical fertilizer is defined as any inorganic material of wholly or partially synthetic origin that is added to the soil to sustain plant growth. When ammonia is used as the nitrogen source in a fertilizer, one method of synthetic production requires the use of natural gas and air. The phosphorus component is made using sulfur, coal, and phosphate rock. The potassium source comes from potassium chloride, a primary component of potash. Understanding NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potash (Potassium)) ratings on lawn and plant fertilizers is an important part of deciding whether or not fertilizers are appropriate or even necessary for your garden and landscaping. Inorganic fertilizer, also known as mineral or commercial fertilizer, is fertilizer mined from mineral deposits or manufactured from synthetic compounds. Fertilisers make crops grow faster and bigger so that crop yields are increased. They're minerals, which must first dissolve in water so that plants can absorb them through their roots. Fertilisers provide plants with the essential chemical elements needed for growth particularly nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
Jether Blaise back with a vengeance, covering the impact the abundance of natural gas has been having on the chemical industry, and the innovations in process technologies that it has spawned. I look at the contrast between processing petroleum as a chemical feedstock vs. processing natural gas as such. Because of the steep energy costs associated with steam reforming of natural gas, and the Fischer Tropsch process, new approaches have been sought out by chemical engineers to lower the costs of producing syngas, or sidestepping that route altogether.
Also, we take a look at a promising technology for reducing the water footprint of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, and finish up with a look at China's largest propane dehydrogenation facility.
