The Louisiana Chemical Association and the Louisiana Chemical Industry Alliance are sister organizations representing a unified voice of chemical manufacturers, vendors and suppliers in Louisiana. Both organizations work with local and state officials, community organizations and business interests to promote a positive climate for chemical manufacturing that insures long term economic growth.
The petrochemical industry is under attack unlike anything in recent history. While resistance to industry is nothing new, the challenges we face today hit in an area that is difficult to fight against without coming across as completely out-of-touch. In today’s world, many rely on emotion, paying no attention to facts.
“The Louisiana Chemical Association and our member companies are committed to finding real solutions to protect the world around us without jeopardizing the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of Louisiana workers. While I voted in support of Gov. Edwards’ Climate Action Plan, I remain concerned about certain provisions that could threaten our state’s most important industries and largest job creators."
“We remain disappointed that U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan did not meet with us or with any of our industry members during his visit to Louisiana last November, despite our requests."
