WPC 2019: Industry must address plastic waste head on, says LyondellBasell CEO

Shaped by photographs of garbage-strewn beaches and reports of a vast Pacific garbage patch, public attitudes toward plastics are increasingly skeptical, and it will take more than education to reverse the trend, says Bob Patel, CEO of LyondellBasell. Speaking Wednesday at IHS Markit's World Petrochemical Conference (WPC) 2019 in San Antonio, Texas, he warned that the problem of plastics waste is growing, and that it will require innovative solutions developed cooperatively across the value chain.

Global economic growth is decelerating but a recession is unlikely, as chemical earnings are expected to weaken from a peak in 2018 but remain at a high level.
