The rush is on, as numerous North American petrochemical firms have begun announcing plant expansions, restarts and new facilities that use low-cost shale gas for energy and natural gas liquids for feedstock.
Downstream editor Greg Haas will moderate a panel of experts discussing the boom at U.S. olefins manufacturers that are lining up to use ample low-cost shale gas to produce price-competitive ethylene for local and export markets that are hungry for the chemistry and plastics that underpin our modern way of life.
Find out about more about North American shale gas, why the chemical manufacturing industry is becoming a major new source of shale gas demand, and the impacts of expanded U.S. petrochemical investment for the broader domestic manufacturing sector and U.S. economy.
