Mid-January 2021, the European Solvents Industry Group (ESIG), a sector group of Petrochemicals Europe, held its first Stakeholder Day, which is part of a series of events on "Solvents & the European Green Deal". It focused on the sustainability and circular Economy aspects.
Following the publication by the European Commission (EC) of its proposal for the revised benzene Occupational Exposure Limits (OEL), the industry has already started to develop implementation plans to comply with the value and the Cefic Aromatics Producers’ Association (APA) and Concawe have written guidelines to help refineries and petrochemical sites do so.
The Responsible Care initiative has launched its new self-assessment webtool, strengthening support for companies towards improving the safe production, handling and use of chemicals across supply chains.
