Cell phones, water bottles, home furnishings, sports equipment, medical devices, even our clothing. Most of the things we come in contact with everyday begin as a natural gas molecule.
That’s why chemists refer to natural gas as a “feedstock.”
In a chemical plant called a cracker, molecules are broken apart and then reassembled to make the materials we use in countless everyday products.
Access to vast new supplies of American natural gas from shale deposits is one of the most exciting domestic energy developments in decades. This energy “game changer” is helping create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, and improve trade, all while contributing to the sustainable solutions essential to a better world.
