The Shale Gas Advantage: Generating Investment, Creating Chemistry for Industrial Growth in North America

 Hans  Engel
SPEAKER:
Hans Engel
Chairman & CEO
BASF Corporation
View Biography

It’s been called a “game changer” for energy-intensive industries in North America. It’s regarded by many as America’s ticket to energy independence. Others view it as a key driver of economic recovery and long-term growth. It’s changed the way industry looks at the North American market. It’s intriguing. It’s relevant. It’s controversial. It's shale gas -- a development that has ignited a wave of unprecedented chemical industry investment in the US. Comparatively inexpensive and readily available shale gas, for use as both a fuel and production feedstock, continues to create opportunities for chemical companies like BASF. Hans Engel, Chairman and CEO of BASF Corporation, will discuss the economic dynamics of the shale gas age and what they mean for the chemical industry.
