Chemical companies to promote a positive image of the industry - EPCA

October 03/2011

(ICIS) -- Chemical companies must raise their efforts to promote a positive image of the industry and highlight the importance of chemistry, European Petrochemical Association (EPCA) delegates were told on Monday. In his opening address, EPCA president Tom Crotty urged a record 2,500 delegates at the 45th annual EPCA meeting to emphasise the important contribution of the chemical industry and endeavour to raise public awareness.


Nothing in our modern world could exist without the ingenuity of chemists and chemical engineers. So why dont people celebrate this? I think to a degree weve only got ourselves to blame, said Crotty, a board member of Switzerland-headquartered INEOS.

The theme of the event was that more than 95% of the products used in everyday life rely on the chemical industry, whether it is in food, clothing, healthcare, transportation, communication, education or entertainment, he said.
