Polypropylene Carbonate
PPC
Polypropylene Carbonate (a.k.a. PPC) is a thermoplastic polymer produced from the catalyzed copolymerization between carbon dioxide and propylene oxide. The copolymer chain is composed of alternative segments of carbon dioxide and propylene oxide, and small amounts of propylene oxide homopolymer. Some of its favorable properties include excellent transparency, good barrier against water and oxygen, printability and nontoxicity. This polymer presents important environmental appeals: greenhouse gas sequestration that minimizes global warming impacts, and some PPC composites are appointed as biodegradable materials.
The uses and applications of Polypropylene Carbonate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polypropylene Carbonate are pellets; film; in solution form; or/and as an aqueous emulsion.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
