The Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) represents leading manufacturers of plastic resins. We may not think about them often, but versatile plastics inspire countless innovations that help make life better, healthier and safer every day.

For example, plastics make possible bicycle helmets and child safety seats. They’re in the airbags that protect us and the cell phones that connect us. And plastics help keep the foods we eat and serve our families safer and fresher than ever before.

Our members are proud to manufacture materials that can help us to do more with less and contribute to a more efficient use of resources. These are just some of the ways plastics are helping to create a better planet and a safer world.

Here is the American Chemistry Council’s Steve Russell talking with Plastics News about plastics recycling, marine debris and waste to energy technologies.
