Since 2022, Russia-Ukraine geopolitical conflicts have intensified, and global energy prices have risen sharply, with international natural gas prices hitting historic highs. As the most important transitional energy source in the transition from fossil energy to non-fossil energy, the share of natural gas in primary energy has increased from 14.6% in 1965 to 24.7% in 2020. The global gas price indices showed a unilateral downward trend from 2018, bottomed out in 2020, and remained low for a long time. However, since July 2020, the global gas prices have gradually fluctuated upward, and the impact of geopolitical events made the Dutch TTF gas price even hit record highs repeatedly.
An analyst of a securities company believes that the core catalyst of this round of global gas market lies in the lack of investment in upstream oil and gas resources caused by long-term low prices. Since 2020, although the epidemic has led to a decline in demand, the decline in supply has been faster, resulting in a large inventory consumption. In 2021, demand will recover faster than supply (the supply-side is less sensitive to prices, which will be reflected in investment).
As the world's two largest gas sodium silicate are also expected to change significantly.
Soaps and detergent
Sodium silicate has the ability to enhance surface effects, such as wetting with organic surfactants (reducing surface tension), helping to keep small dirt or oil particles suspended in the detergent, or enhancing the ability to remove dirt from the surface.
The alkalinity of sodium silicate enables it to neutralize acidic soil and promote the emulsification of oil and the dispersion of protein.
Sodium silicate as a cardboard coating can increase the hardness of the cardboard and increase its resistance to moisture, fire, grease and pests. Silicate can also be used as an oil repellent alone.
Sodium silicate can be used as a primer for the application of auxiliary materials such as paraffin, naphthalene chloride, wax, gum, nitrocellulose, varnish and other cardboard coatings. It fills the pores of the cardboard and reduces the water absorption of the paper, thus reducing the amount of topcoat required.
Soluble silicate can be used as cement binder. When Portland is combined with cement components, they will undergo chemical reactions to form substances with strong bonding properties. It can also be used to improve the durability of concrete.
Soluble silicate is used in many mineral enrichment processes. The main use of sodium silicate in ore flotation is as an antiflocculant to disperse unwanted siliceous substances. Only a small amount of silicate with a concentration similar to that used in cleaning operations is required. The ability of silicate to form a sodium ion layer on the particle surface is important for preparing the surface for specific separation. Sodium silicate helps to prevent corrosion, thereby reducing ball wear in the mill.
Dilute anionic silica aqueous solution provided by soluble silicate can inhibit the corrosion of metal surface.
As an additive in water, dissolved SiO2 can prevent corrosion of metal storage tanks and distribution lines. It reduces corrosion of pumps and pipelines by acidic water (for example, from mine drainage); reduces corrosion during ball rod mill grinding; and minimizes corrosion of process equipment as an ingredient in spray drying, agglomeration or dry mixed detergent formulations; and metal parts in laundry and dishwashing equipment. As a component of the liquid in the ‘permanent’ automobile cooling system. As an additive for water treatment compounds in boilers and cooling towers.
