ICAIA workshop, Beijing, April 2015
China is the world’s largest chlorinated alkane manufacturer, and in April 2015, it hosted the International Chlorinated Paraffins Conference in Beijing. This was the second workshop of its kind and was co-organised by Euro Chlor and CCAIA (China Chlor-alkali Industry Association) and hosted by CCAON (China Chlor-Alkali OnLine)
The workshop reminded participants that chlorinated alkanes provide effective solutions in many applications and products that improve and protect people’s lives worldwide.
At the same time, these products continue to be under high regulatory pressure in various parts of the world, often due to political, rather than scientific reasons. During the conference information was shared on topics such as research on health and environmental impact, social and economic benefits of CA containing products and developing best practices for risk management of CA production/ uses.
