INTERNATIONAL BRIEFS

Brazilian law reinforces agchem container disposal rules – Brazilian President Lula Ignacio da Silva has approved a law governing the collection of empty pesticide packaging. "Brazil has become the world reference for the safe destination of [empty] pesticide containers," da Silva claims. The law reinforces rules adopted in 2002, and expands actions to other areas threatening the environment, the Ministry of Agriculture says. Packaging will have to be manufactured from materials that allow its re-use or recycling, while manufacturers, importers, distributors and end-users will share responsibility for product life-cycles.
