from American Chemistry Matters

The United States continues to reign as the place to manufacture chemicals now, as potential U.S. chemical industry investment has now topped $100 billion. As of this month, the number of publicly-announced chemical and plastics projects stands at 148, with the tally continuing to grow (ACC's first report analyzed 97 projects valued at $71.7 billion announced through March 2013).
