China OKs three more agchem producers

China has approved three more companies to engage in the manufacture of agrochemical active ingredients. It came at the end of last year and was the fourth and final such batch of approvals to be issued by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in 2011. The third tranche was released last month (see this issue). The first two approvals were for: Ningxia Ruitai Technology, which received permission for an 8,000 tonnes/year facility for the fungicide, thiophanate-methyl, and a 5,000 tonnes/year facility for the fungicide, carbendazim; and Zhenjiang Runyu Biotechnology Development, which was given the go ahead for two Empedobacter brevis bacterial biopesticide facilities: one that will produce 200 tonnes/year of the ai, and one that will manufacture 3,000 tonnes/year of a suspension agent. The final approval was granted to Anji Tongrui Biotechnology, for an 80 tonnes/year facility for the plant growth regulator, gibberellin.
