  1. 1. Sustainable U.S. Manufacturing: A Route to Immediate Energy Savings Hratch G. Semerjian, Ph.D. President, CCR Alliance to Save Energy Briefing Washington, DC March 19, 2010 THE COUNCIL FOR CHEMICAL RESEARCH
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Council for Chemical Research (CCR) was created in 1979 to improve trust and collaboration between the public and private research sectors. </li></ul><ul><li>“ CCR's purpose is to benefit society by advancing research in chemistry, chemical engineering, and related disciplines through leadership collaboration across discipline, institution, and sector boundaries.” </li></ul>Council for Chemical Research The Council for Chemical Research
  3. 3. CCR Membership <ul><li>Represents research leadership in 3 sectors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Industry (~20 corporations) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Academia (~120 research universities) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Government Labs (~10 national labs) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organized as a “not-for-profit” corporation </li></ul><ul><li>Speaks for the S&T community </li></ul>The Council for Chemical Research
  4. 4. Chemical Industry Vision2020 <ul><li>In 1997, the chemical industry - represented by CMA (now ACC), SOCMA, ACS, AIChE, and the CCR - created Vision 2020: </li></ul><ul><li>“ to outline a path of research, development, and technology demonstration for the chemical industry to continue as the global leader into the next century.” </li></ul><ul><li>Over 100 industry, academic and government organizations participated in Vision 2020 activities </li></ul>The Council for Chemical Research
  5. 5. Recent NIChE Conferences The Council for Chemical Research Ionic Liquids: Background, State-of-the-Art, and Applications ( 2005) Advanced Polymers: Developing High-performance Polymeric Materials for the Future ( 2006) Modeling Challenges in Process Development: Approaches in the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries ( 2007) Bio-Based Feedstocks (2007) Carbon Capture and Sequestration (2008) Micro-Reactor Technologies (2009)
  6. 6. Road to Energy Security <ul><li>Develop all potential energy sources </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fossil Hydro </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nuclear Geothermal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar Biofuels </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Improve efficiency of energy utilization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Power Generation Transportation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Buildings Industry </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Sustainable U.S. Manufacturing <ul><li>Chemical and Allied Industries: </li></ul><ul><li>a key component of the U.S. economy </li></ul><ul><li>20,000+ establishments </li></ul><ul><li>$1.5 trillion in annual sales </li></ul><ul><li>$79 billion payroll </li></ul><ul><li>1.3 million direct employees; support many other jobs </li></ul><ul><li>5% of the nation’s GDP </li></ul><ul><li>$44 billion in federal tax revenues in 2006 </li></ul><ul><li>Provide a significant portion of inputs to other industries </li></ul><ul><li>Consume 45% of energy sources and emit 38% of GHGs of the US industrial sector </li></ul>
  8. 8. Sustainable Manufacturing <ul><li>Definition: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ the creation of manufactured products that use processes that minimize negative environmental impacts, conserve energy and natural resources, are safe for employees, communities, and consumers and are economically sound.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>U.S. Department of Commerce </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Need for Sustainable Manufacturing <ul><li>Economic, business, and employment trends show a decline in U.S. manufacturing, requiring U.S. industry, government, and academia visualize a sustainable manufacturing future and work toward that vision. </li></ul><ul><li>The world is increasingly resource-constrained, environmentally challenged, and globally competitive, and returns are steadily diminishing. The future of the U.S. industrial sector must lie in sustainable manufacturing. </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainable manufacturing will provide improved environmental, conservation, and safety metrics, but will also allow U.S. manufacturers to compete better globally. </li></ul><ul><li>Investment is needed for innovation and new technologies that take advantage of sustainable science and engineering knowledge while enabling economic growth. </li></ul>

  11. 11. Anticipated General Benefits <ul><li>77% reduction in fossil fuel use </li></ul><ul><li>75% reduction in petroleum use (equivalent to a 200-day supply from the Persian Gulf and Africa) </li></ul><ul><li>52% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions; a reduction in CO 2 emissions equivalent to removing 90 million cars from the roadways </li></ul><ul><li>The general maintenance of the productive capacity of our country </li></ul>Annual Benefits All Research Topics Gross Energy Savings (TBtu) 8,950 Gross Cost Savings ($M) $ 66,796 Net Additional Revenue w/less Feedstock ($M) $ 42,502 CO 2 Removed (MMT) 429 New Corporate Tax Revenue ($M) $ 12,751 New Direct Jobs 497,000
  12. 12. CCR Study Results <ul><li>Results of the 5 year (2 phase) study were published in two reports: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Measuring Up: R&D Counts for the Chemical Industry” – 2001 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Measure for Measure: Chemical R&D Powers the U.S. Innovation Engine” - 2005 </li></ul></ul>The Council for Chemical Research
  13. 13. Macroeconomic Implications The Council for Chemical Research $1 B Federal R&D Funding In Chemical Sciences $5 B Chemical Industry R&D Funding $10 B Chemical Industry Operating Income* Basis: *estimated from CCR study **extrapolated from LANL study by Thayer, et al., April 2005 using REMI economic model $40 B GNP** 0.6 M Jobs** $8 B Taxes**
  14. 14. CCR Studies - Overall Conclusions <ul><li>Chemical companies get $2 of operating income for every $1 of R&D invested; that’s a 17% after tax return </li></ul><ul><li>Chemical technology is highly dependent on publicly funded chemical science research </li></ul><ul><li>U.S. economy gains roughly $40 dollars in GDP growth and $8 in increased tax revenues for every dollar of federal investment in chemical sciences research </li></ul><ul><li>Technology quality, innovation speed and strong scientific links deliver greater shareholder value </li></ul><ul><li>All industries are significantly impacted by the chemical sciences. It is the most enabling science and technology </li></ul><ul><li>The big opportunity is to reduce the 20-year innovation time lag from initial public research funding to commercialization </li></ul>The Council for Chemical Research
  15. 15. Summary <ul><li>Success will require: </li></ul><ul><li>Effective collaboration between industry, universities and government labs </li></ul><ul><li>Investment in R&D and risk sharing between the public and private sectors </li></ul><ul><li>Balance between long term vision and short term technology implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Returns will be significant for U.S. energy and economic security and industrial competitiveness </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] www.ccrhq.org </li></ul>The Council for Chemical Research
