February chemical trends report confirms a slight fall in EU chemicals output in the second half of last year. Down by about 1% on 2017, production was affected by a slowdown in the global economy.
Cefic, the organisation to which Petrochemicals Europe belongs, published a statement indicating that EU chemical industry is committed to making REACH work. It acknowledges that data gaps need to be tackled more swiftly and efficiently.
