ACI postpones 2021 convention

September 29/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) announced that it is postponing its annual convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Chemweek.

The next in-person meeting will be held in January 2022 in Orlando, Florida. The decision was made after extensive surveying of member companies and in-depth assessments of travel policies and regulations. ACI asks members to continue to save the week of 25 January 2021 for a members-only ACI Virtual Summit.

This event will feature meetings of ACIs expert standing committees, annual State of the Association address, policy and issue briefings, educational sessions on topics essential to the cleaning products industry, and opportunities to network with industry peers. As the cleaning products industry has demonstrated over the last several months, we are resilient, we are essential to public health and well-being. and we will adapt successfully in the year ahead, said Melissa Hockstad, ACI President and CEO.

As MRC informed earlier, crude prices were holding lower in midday US trading Sept. 25 as the market eyed rising COVID-19 cases in Europe as well as fresh hopes for more US stimulus spending. In Europe, resurgence of the coronavirus is prompting governments to reintroduce new restrictions on movement. Around 40% of Madrid's intensive care capacity is now taken up by people suffering from the virus, while on Sept. 24 France, the UK and Spain reported 16,096, 6,634 and 2,321 new cases, respectively -- the highest totals for those countries since spring.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's overall PE production totalled 1,712,400 tonnes in the first seven months of 2020, up by 58% year on year. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) accounted for the greatest increase in the output. At the same time, overall PP production in Russia increased in January-July 2020 by 24% year on year to 1,063,700 tonne. ZapSibNeftekhim accounted for the main increase in the output.
