CEP: Chem Economics - Post-9/11 Chemical Security Spending

November
2012

The terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, changed the world and forever altered the way American chemistry conducts business. While improving facility security is not a new endeavor for chemical companies, the industry has increased its attention to security as a result of heightened concern about terrorism and sabotage. In the wake of the September 11th attacks, companies have reevaluated their security procedures and policies, assessed vulnerabilities, implemented new programs, and made additional investments to protect chemical facilities. American Chemistry Council (ACC) members have invested more than $11.2 billion to increase security at chemical facilities since that time.
