Great Lakes hikes fumigant prices

Chemtura’s US subsidiary, Great Lakes Solutions (West Lafayette, Indiana), is to raise the price of its fumigant, methyl bromide, from March 1st. Outside of North America, prices will be raised by up to 20%. Within North America, prices will rise by up to 40% for applications approved under critical use exemptions, while prices for quarantine and pre-shipment applications will climb by up to 60%. The increases are necessary because of “input cost escalation” and investments associated with regulatory compliance, advocacy and manufacturing, the company points out.
