Du Pont set to inherit ICI's N2O emission problem

US chemical giant Du Pont is to take over ICI's European nylon business - and with it the UK's largest source of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O). ICI's Wilton site on Teesside produces up to 90,000 tonnes per year of the gas - over half of the UK's emissions (ENDS Report 206, pp 26-7 ).
