Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the European Union and the USA has been giving reasons to fear for the representatives of various sectors of the economy. The chemical and agricultural industries have also come up with numerous reservations about the proposed content of the agreement.
The European Technology Platform (ETP) for Sustainable Chemistry (SusChem) published its Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda (SIRA). The document specifies the long-term and short-term innovation priorities. The Agenda draws attention to the essential role of the chemical sector in increasing innovation in Europe and specifies the potential of developing sustainable technologies in chemical companies, which is expected to meet crucial social challenges.
Companies from the chemical industry use millions of tons of resources, so it is only natural that they strive to diversify the sources of their acquisition and reduce their cost. Grupa Azoty and its companies take similar steps.
