LONDON (ICIS)--The Association of Petrochemicals Producers in Europe (Appe) has adopted the new, shorter name of Petrochemicals Europe, according to the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic), to which Appe belongs.

“The renaming better reflects the current and future direction of the industry association... Our vision is to be recognised as part of the foundation of future economic success in Europe, fuelling innovation, manufacturing, and employment,” said Dorothee Arns, executive director of the Cefic for petrochemistry and plastic additives sector and Petrochemicals Europe.

“The Petrochemicals Europe name fits perfectly with the role the industry plays across Europe and will certainly help us raising our profile in a time of increasing challenges for our industry,” she added.

Petrochemicals Europe represents petrochemicals producers in Europe, with about 90 ethylene and propylene producers as members.
