American Chemistry supports funding clean energy programs as part of an economic recovery package.  American Chemistry produces materials that make the rest of the economy more energy efficient (e.g. insulation, light-weight vehicle parts).  We also make materials used in clean energy technologies (e.g. wind turbines, solar panels, lithium-ion batteries).  Finally, American Chemistry invests in technologies and services that improve the energy-efficiency of our own operations (e.g. combined heat and power systems).  Investing in clean energy programs creates jobs, improves the nation’s energy security, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.  Here are some of the many programs American Chemistry supports.
