The American Chemistry Council (ACC) recently announced the launch of a new energy advocacy and awareness campaign, “From Chemistry to Energy.” Cal Dooley, president and CEO, was joined by members of Congress and business leaders at an event on Capitol Hill.

“In order for our economy to grow, U.S. industries to innovate and compete globally, and businesses to create new jobs, a national energy strategy is critical,” said Dooley. “Through this campaign, we will promote the development of sound energy policies that support these goals, while highlighting chemistry’s role in enabling a strong, secure and sustainable future for the U.S.”

Americans agree that a national energy strategy is needed. According to a recent national survey conducted by Washington-based Clarus Research Group, an overwhelming majority of voters (94%) believe that a “comprehensive energy policy is essential to building a strong economy, creating new jobs, and making America more competitive with other countries.”

“Many people don’t realize that the chemistry industry is the foundation of America’s manufacturing sector,” said Jim Gallogly, CEO of LyondellBasell. “Chemistry creates the basic building blocks for countless products Americans rely on every day, as well as 96% of all manufactured goods made in the U.S. Abundant, affordable domestic natural gas has created a new competitive edge for American chemistry, and it’s driving a renaissance in U.S. manufacturing.”

“America’s chemistry industry is a technology and materials innovator and can play a central role in meeting energy challenges,” said Gary W. Spitzer, president of DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts. “At DuPont, we are intensely focused on using science to address major challenges, including the need for abundant, affordable and increasingly clean energy. We offer solutions that enable renewable energy technologies as well as reduced energy consumption, and we continuously improve our own energy efficiency. These efforts reflect the kinds of contributions being made across our industry.”
