From waste to value: The GCC chemical industry’s contribution to the circular economy

Assessing the IMO sulphur cap regulation: Implications to 2020 and beyond

Opinion: Enabling a circular economy in the Arabian Gulf
Enhancing the sustainability of plastic products and applications, throughout their life-cycle and further integrating the GCC plastic value chain to create and economically sustain a market for recycled materials would be another key step forward in fulfilling the circular economy vision, comments Dr Abdulwahab Al-Sadoun.
Opinion: Sustainable plastic solutions crucial for today’s global challenges
A circular economy that significantly reduces waste can only be achieved through behavioural change and moving from single-use to reusable applications. Plastic is still the most sustainable option to promote reusability, comments Dr Abdulwahab Al-Sadoun, secretary general of GPCA.
Opinion: New IMO regulation may create more losers than winners
Due for full implementation by January 2020, the new 2020 IMO sulphur fuel regulation is calling for the reduction of sulphur content in marine bunker fuel from 3.5% to 0.5%, or below, comments Dr Abdulwahab Al-Sadoun, secretary general of the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA).
