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.
Shale Gas and New U.S. Chemical Industry Investment: $145 Billion and Counting
Potential U.S. chemical industry investment linked to plentiful and affordable natural gas has topped $145 billion. These projects – new facilities, expansions, factory restarts, and process changes to increase capacity – could lead to $103 billion per year in new chemical industry output and at least 717,000 permanent new jobs across the economy by 2023.
