ACC members are continually seeking new ways to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions in manufacturing and operations. Responsible Care® is the foundation for our industry’s commitment to sustainability.
Chemistry is the science behind innovative solutions that empower cleaner energy options, create green jobs, and propel U.S. economic growth. Chemistry enables energy-saving and renewable applications including solar panels and wind turbines, electric and fuel-efficient vehicles, high-performance building materials, advanced batteries, energy-efficient lighting, and more.
The chemistry industry has a central role in U.S. manufacturing. It supports key industries such as automotive, building and construction, agriculture, healthcare, textiles and apparel, and computers and electronics. And it all starts with energy.
The chemical industry is a leader in the use of combined heat and power (CHP), a highly efficient process for generating heat and electricity on-site, and we helped pioneer catalytic technologies that let facilities produce more with less energy.
Domestic Energy Can Spur Further Growth While Supporting Energy Transition, Lower GHG Emissions
