This week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Advanced Vehicle Technology Act of 2009, which favours the increase of energy efficiency through the use of plastic and composite materials in vehicle design.

American Chemistry Council President and CEO, Cal Dooley, welcomed this decision. ""The American Chemistry Council (ACC) praises the U.S. House of Representatives for passing H.R. 3246, the Advanced Vehicle Technology Act of 2009. This important legislation will create a comprehensive research and development program to spur innovation in the design of fuel efficient vehicles and components,” said Dooley.

""Consumers are continuing to seek new ways to reduce their energy consumption, in particular, through more energy efficient vehicles. ACC member companies are working with their automotive manufacturing partners to create innovative vehicle components that reduce weight, lower emissions and increase fuel efficiency without compromising passenger safety,” Dooley concluded.
