Resin pricing has reached near-historic levels over the past few months, as reported in our frequent updates on PlasticsToday. Hurricane Ida did not affect resin capacity as much as the freak February storm did, but it has aggravated the difficult supply and demand dynamics that plastics processors continue to wrestle with. To learn more, we spoke with Zachary Moore, Deputy Managing Editor, Americas, of ICIS, a business intelligence resource on the global chemical and energy markets. Moore has been working in the petrochemicals industry for the past 11 years, and in this podcast he shares his insights on where we stand today and what we should expect in the weeks and months ahead.
