American Chemistry Council Welcomes Sustainable Chemistry Research and Development Act
WASHINGTON (April 3, 2019) – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) announced its support for bicameral, bipartisan legislation to promote research and investments in sustainable chemistry.
The “Sustainable Chemistry Research and Development Act of 2019,” today was introduced by Senators Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) alongside companion legislation in the House by Representatives Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.) and John Moolenar (R-Mich.). This important legislation will establish an interagency sustainable chemistry workgroup to promote and coordinate federal sustainable chemistry research, development, education and training activities. The interagency group will consult and coordinate with key sustainability stakeholders, including the business and scientific communities.
“ACC welcomes bipartisan and bicameral action on this significant legislation,” said ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley. “The men and women of the chemical industry are committed to working with experts in other business sectors, at universities and in government to develop new ways that chemistry can enable sustainability in our everyday lives. The business of chemistry plays a critical role in the American economy, and innovations in chemistry products, processes and technologies continuously enhance these contributions.”
