  • We highlight pertinent chemical sector corporate updates (e.g., Ashland, Dow, Sekisui Chemical, Sinopec, Wacker, & other price & business news).  
  • Broadly demand indicators remain robust. US refinery operating rates and North American chemical rail traffic increase WoW.
  • We find numerous ESG announcements worth note, particularly noting updates in green methanol, bio-plastics, & an e-cracker development.
  • We note numerous other pertinent chemical sector items in this report.
