China lists first green glyphosate manufacturers

China has issued its first list of environmentally compliant glyphosate herbicide manufacturers. The list was published for industry consultation by China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection this month. The evaluation is aimed at reducing the impact on the  environment caused by glyphosate manufacturing via the intermediate, N-(phosphonomethyl) iminodiacetic acid. It was initially planned to take place over three years from 2013, with each year seeing the publication of a list of environmentally compliant producers, but the publication of this initial list was delayed from December 2013 (Agrow No 686, p 19). Four Chinese glyphosate producers were listed as complying with Chinese environmental production standards:  Zhenjiang Jiangnan Chemicals, Nantong Jiangshan Agrochemical and Chemical, Jiangsu Youth Chemical, and Hubei Taisheng Chemical.
