Hurricane Preparedness for the Chemical Industry 

Chemistry is essential to just about every aspect of the U.S. economy, with more than 96% of all manufactured goods directly touched by the chemistry industry.

Some form of chemical production can be found in nearly every state. However, much of it is concentrated in the U.S. Gulf Coast region, where there is access to many transportation options and to raw materials such as petroleum and natural gas, which are used to make basic chemicals that are needed to manufacture everyday items throughout the country. Of course, this is also a part of the country that is regularly hit by tropical storms and hurricanes, which is why the chemical industry goes to great lengths to prepare for extreme weather events.

American Chemistry Council

The American Chemistry Council’s mission is to advocate for the people, policy, and products of chemistry that make the United States the global leader in innovation and manufacturing. To achieve this, we: Champion science-based policy solutions across all levels of government; Drive continuous performance improvement to protect employees and communities through Responsible Care®; Foster the development of sustainability practices throughout ACC member companies; and Communicate authentically with communities about challenges and solutions for a safer, healthier and more sustainable way of life. Our vision is a world made better by chemistry, where people live happier, healthier, and more prosperous lives, safely and sustainably—for generations to come.
