The Golden Age of Chemicals: A Question of Sustainability

The World Petrochemical Conference is the premier petrochemical industry event, providing unparalleled insight and critical analysis from across the supply chain — from the wellhead to retail.

The chemicals industry is in an extended period of boom time, thanks to strong demand, tight supply in some product chains, and low feedstock costs. However, looming economic, political and environmental risks could threaten the sustainability of this upcycle, as well as the industry in the longer term.

What must the industry do to ensure its viability?

The 34th Annual World Petrochemical Conference will explore these critical issues surrounding the chemical industry and strategies to managing them successfully:

  • Trade — Rising trade tensions; Brexit isolation of the U.K.
  • Economic — Risk of recession in China or Europe
  • Feedstocks — Volatile crude oil prices
  • Market — Growing wave of new capacity and potential new builds
  • Circularity — Environmental sustainability and plastic waste
