The Louisiana Chemical Association
The Louisiana Chemical Association (LCA) was formed in 1959 to promote a positive business climate for chemical manufacturing that ensures long-term economic growth for its current 63 member companies that collectively operate more than 100 facilities throughout Louisiana.
LCA, Louisiana Chemical Industry Alliance and related organizations work to protect and expand Louisiana’s petrochemical manufacturing base. It is critical for the industry to have a unified voice in state governmental activities because legislative and regulatory actions can and do affect capital investment and job retention and growth.
A Board of Directors comprising 17 member company representatives, primarily plant managers and divisional vice presidents, governs LCA. LCA has an experienced staff with expertise in the chemical industry, as well as environmental science, health, safety, security, governmental affairs, and communications and association management.
Chlorine Chemistry Division
The Chlorine Chemistry Division of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) represents major producers and users of chlorine in North America. The Division works to promote and protect the sustainability of chlorine chemistry processes, products and applications in accordance with the principles of Responsible Care®.
Process Technology Program (PTEC)
Louisiana’s chlorine chemistry producers offer exciting jobs with highly competitive salaries and benefits. LCA, the Governor’s Workforce Commission, higher education and associated community colleges took a proactive step to advance Process Technology Program or PTEC. It is the standardized curriculum for a two-year associate of applied science degree that prepares graduates to work as process technology operators throughout the Louisiana chemical industry.
