APIC 2019 theme: Sustainable solutions for a better world.
The petrochemical industry has a profound impact in all aspects of our lives. The most important mission of the petrochemical industry is to create a sustainable future.
There were seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the United Nations in 2015, and it is important that these Goals need to be achieved by 2030. Twelve of the seventeen SDGs are directly linked to chemistry or chemicals.
In summary, high technology incorporation, high value-added manufacturing, and environmental friendliness are the keys to the sustained development for the petrochemical industry. Information technology such as big data and artificial intelligence should be deeply integrated within the petrochemical industry. The petrochemical industry must continue to develop and provide great products to enabling a better world.
