The American Chemistry Council (ACC) commented on a federal proposal to increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in passenger automobiles and light trucks. The rulemaking effort will increase Corporate Average Fuel Economy, or CAFE standards. The ACC noted that lighter-weight materials, such as plastics and plastics composites, can help automakers reach the new CAFE targets, since less energy is required to power a lighter vehicle.
