Transitioning towards new feedstocks for development of chemicals involves more than just changing raw materials; it includes developing new techniques, infrastructure, chemical pathways, and processing technologies, requiring major financial and intellectual investments. Hence, the resources needed to achieve this transformation involves long lasting and strong partnerships amongst industries, academics, and governments. Global competitiveness in the chemicals and energy sectors, attainment of sustainability goals, and curtailment of fossil fuel usage greatly depend on efficient and sustained use of unconventional resources for developing various intermediate and end- use chemicals across industries. This research service profiles emerging technologies that will enable alternative feedstocks to meet future demands for chemicals and analyses how it opens new possibilities to impact and converge with other industries. It also emphasis on how technology developments in the conversion of gas to chemicals value chain are associated with feedstock sources, new chemical conversion pathways and technologies, economic and efficient processing technologies, new materials and products. The research service also establishes that alternative feedstocks, specifically methane, obtained from unconventional sources can control green house emissions while economically producing commercially viable chemicals. The research also emphasizes on:  Attainment of unique global competitive advantage by utilizing abundant methane generated from unconventional sources such as shale oil, natural gas, oil sands, and flue gases for feedstock production.  Creation of a new manufacturing sector in feedstock supply, preparation, and conversion to carbon building blocks.  Transition of manufacturing and energy use toward a low-carbon future.  Emphasis on developing new process technologies/upgrading existing technologies is prioritized across geographies.
