Appe, the Association of Petrochemicals Producers in Europe, has changed its name to Petrochemicals Europe.

The association says it feels that the new name better reflects its current and future direction. Petrochemicals Europe will continue to operate under the Cefic umbrella, the Brussels-based European Chemical Industry Council.

“Our vision is to be recognized as part of the foundation of future economic success in Europe, fuelling innovation, manufacturing, and employment,” said Dorothee Arns, executive director of the Cefic Petrochemistry & Plastic Additives Sector and Petrochemicals Europe. “The Petrochemicals Europe name fits perfectly with the role the industry plays across Europe and will certainly help us raising our profile in a time of increasing challenges for our industry.”

Petrochemicals saw sales of 155 billion euros ($209.8 billion) in 2012 to the European Union economy.

Cefic states it is the forum and the voice of the chemical industry in Europe, it represents 29,000 chemical companies in Europe, which account for 20 percent of world chemical production.
