ACC welcomes four new members, two Responsible Care partner companies

February 05/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The American Chemistry Councils (ACC) Board of Directors today announced the approval of four new regular members as well as two Responsible Care Partner companies, reported Chemweek.

The regular members are Arcanum Infrastructure, LLC (Houston, Texas), CHEMRES (Princeton, New Jersey), EMD Performance Materials (Allentown, Pennsylvania), and Epsilyte LLC (Woodlands, Texas).

Arcanum Infrastructure manufactures Butene-1. CHEMRES is a specialized custom compounder, producing high-performance resins for medical devices and diagnostics, packaging, wire and cable, and industrial applications. EMD Performance Materials is a leader in semiconductor and electronics materials, display and surface solutions, and specialty gases. Epsilyte manufactures expandable polystyrene.

R&S Delivered (St. Louis, Missouri) and C Three Logistics (Newfield, New Jersey) were approved as Responsible Care Partner companies. R&S Delivered is a third-party logistics company specializing in chemical packaged goods in the less than truckload (LTL) and dry van transportation sector. C Three Logistics is a bulk chemical product motor carrier.

As MRC informed before, ACCs chemical activity barometer (CAB), a leading economic indicator and composite index of industry activity, rose 1.5% in January, following a 1.3% increase in December, on a sequential three-month moving average (3MMA). The barometer was up 1.3% on a year-on-year (YOY) basis in January.

We remind that Russia's output of chemical products rose in November 2020 by 9.5% year on year. At the same time, production of basic chemicals increased in the first eleven months of 2020 by 6.6% year on year, according to Rosstat's data. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the January-November 2020 output. November production of polymers in primary form rose to 896,000 tonnes from 852,000 tonnes in October. Overall output of polymers in primary form totalled 9,240,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 17.1%  year on year.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,220,640 tonnes in 2020, up by 2% year on year. Only shipments of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) increased. At the same time, polypropylene (PP) shipments to the Russian market reached 1 240,000 tonnes in 2020 (calculated using the formula: production, minus exports, plus imports, excluding producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020).
