April 19, 2012: 6:57 PM ET

Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris says his company is going to focus on products that will change the course of humanity: everything from better solar panels to oil that will let us deep-fry guilt-free.

FORTUNE -- Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris closed out Fortune's "Brainstorm Green" conference on April 18, telling the audience about how his company plans to make products that hit certain criteria, one of which is "to affect all humanity" in a positive way.

Then he began to talk about fried chicken.

Dow (DOW) is working on its consumer product business, according to Liveris, which includes a canola oil that is free of trans-fats. "This is a breakthrough product that could make Kentucky Fried Chicken good for you," Liveris said. And humanity rejoices.
