Bayer drops MIC restart

Bayer CropScience has decided not to restart production of its insecticide intermediate, methyl isocyanate (MIC), at its US facility in Institute, West Virginia. The company was due to resume MIC production following an overhaul of the plant after an explosion and fire at the site in 2008. A US court issued a temporary restraining order last month to prevent production resuming after concerns were raised by local residents ( Agrow No 610, p 14).
