Uses & Benefits

Ethylene, Propylene, and 1, 3-butadiene are not sold to or used directly by consumers.

TSCA Risk Evaluation Consortium

1, 3-butadiene was identified as a high-priority candidate chemical for TSCA risk evaluation. It is important to note that a designation of 1, 3-butadiene as a high-priority chemical “does not constitute a finding of risk” and should not be cause for concern. A high-priority designation simply means the EPA has nominated 1, 3-butadiene for further risk evaluation.

Science & Research

The ACC Olefins Panel has a long history of conducting scientific research and communicating critical information to stakeholders, including regulatory agencies in the U.S and abroad, in order to better understand the hazards and risks potentially associated with exposures to Olefins. This includes studies related to understanding the hazard potential and /or exposure scenarios for 1, 3-butadiene and ethylene.

Product Stewardship

The members of the Olefins panel support efforts to improve the industry’s responsible management of chemicals. To assist in this effort, the Panel supported the creation and publication of a manual to provide the reader with a better understanding of how butadiene is manufactured and used to produce products that play an important role in our lives.

About Us

The American Chemistry Council’s Olefins Panel was formed in 1994 to provide health and safety information to customers and government agencies and to promote scientifically sound government regulatory action for olefins. The Olefins Panel is actively involved in research, scientific reviews, product education and advocacy.
