Arkema submits EU dossier for DMDS

French chemical company Arkema (Colombes) has submitted the registration dossier for its soil fumigant, dimethyl disulfide (DMDS), for inclusion in Annex I of the EU agrochemical registration Regulation (1107/2009). The application was submitted to France, the rapporteur member state for the active ingredient, and the French authorities have confirmed its admissibility. The company agreed a deal with Mitsui & Co's agrochemical distribution company, Certis Europe, to register and sell the DMDS-based product, Paladin, in Europe ( Agrow No 631, p 3). Paladin received US approval in 2010 for pre-plant use ( Agrow No 597, p 25). DMDS received Turkish and Lebanese approvals last year ( Agrow No 640, p 21). DMDS targets the market for worldwide substitution of old fumigants, such as methyl bromide, which are being gradually withdrawn due to ozone depletion or regulatory restrictions, the companies say.
