Dr. Kai Pflug – Feb 7, 2017

Regulations in ChinaEnvironmental issues have certainly become more and more important in China. Consequently, environmental protection is one of the 5 core themes of the most recent Five-Year Plan (2016 to 2020). Many new measures in this plan will have impacts on producers and users of plastics additives. Some examples of what the plan proposes are:

  • Moving a majority of chemical production into dedicated chemical parks
  • Reduction of VOC by 30% by 2020
