IYC 2011.png2011 has been named International Year of Chemistry by the United Nations. The date coincides with the centenary of Marie Curie winning the Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

A range of activities is being planned on a national and international basis to support the Year. It gives the industry a welcome chance to promote the positive nature of its activity.

Further information can be found at the website www.chemistry2011.org. And EPCA have also produced a charming video to highlight some of the chemical industry’s key benefits to society.
