Chemistry transforms new supplies of natural gas from shale into a stronger economy and new jobs.

Chemistry enables a more sustainable future through energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.

Chemistry draws on alternative energy sources like energy recovery to enhance our national energy security.

Strong. Secure. Sustainable.

America needs a comprehensive domestic energy strategy that encourages the development of natural gas from shale while promoting energy efficiency and the development of alternative sources such as energy recovery and renewable energy. Through chemistry, we are creating energy solutions that will enable a strong, secure and sustainable future.

What is Chemistry to Energy?Visit Our Resource Center

A comprehensive domestic energy strategy must maximize the national benefits of natural gas from shale while implementing balanced regulatory policies that protect our environment.
We need strong policies and creative, economically sound approaches to encourage greater energy efficiency and renewable energy in the industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
Energy recovery from non-recycled materials like plastics expands the diversity of our nation’s energy supply, complements ongoing recycling efforts, and should be a growing part of America’s energy strategy

Shale Gas and New U.S. Chemical Industry Investment: $153 Billion and Counting

Shale $138 BillionPotential U.S. chemical industry investment linked to plentiful and affordable natural gas has topped $153 billion. These projects – new factories, expansions, and process changes to increase capacity – could lead to $113 billion per year in new chemical industry output and at least 807,000 permanent new jobs across the economy by 2023.
