WASHINGTON, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The American Chemistry Council (ACC) today launched a redesigned public site that takes a visual approach to highlight industry initiatives and how they influence our ability to develop innovative products, create jobs and compete globally.
“Our new, more modern website is a reflection of the very exciting time the business of chemistry is experiencing,” said ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley. “Abundant domestic natural gas supplies are fueling a manufacturing renaissance, and we are embarking on a new era for our industry marked by the recent progress in Congress to bring chemical regulation into the 21st century.
