Manufacturing is one of the largest sectors involved in value creation and makes a decisive contribution to global GDP. The chemical industry is part of this manufacturing sector and is one of the most diverse industries. It is concerned with the production and conversion of raw materials (oil, gas, air, water, metals and minerals) into thousands of products in gaseous, liquid and solid state. It is therefore of central importance for the modern global economy.
