—China Ascendant “” This week’s cover story, “Chemistry Energizes China,” by Senior Correspondent Jean-François Tremblay, examines the remarkable developments in alternative energy in China and the opportunities these developments hold for global chemical companies. “From producing biofuels to improving the efficiency of its power grid, China has embarked on an all-out drive to change the way it generates, transports, and consumes power,” Tremblay writes. “The national effort is opening up myriad opportunities for chemical and materials companies around the world for which, in many ways, China is a more appealing market than the U.S.” Tremblay notes that Ernst & Young ranked China first in the world in its latest Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index and that a recent Pew Charitable Trusts report said that “China led the world in clean technology investments” in 2009.
