Toxic 100 Fingers DuPont As Top Polluter

dupont6.jpgDuPont heads this year’s Toxic 100, a list of the top corporate air polluters in the U.S. from researchers at the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts. Nissan Motor, Archer Daniels Midland, Eastman Kodak, and General Electric round out the top five.

The rankings take into account not only the quantity of releases, but also the relative toxicity of chemicals, nearby populations, and transport factors such as prevailing winds and height of smokestacks, according to the researchers.

For the first time, the Toxic 100 includes foreign corporations with facilities in the U.S. Three of them – Nisssan, Bayer Group, and Acelor Mittal – made the list’s top ten.

Top 10 (links go to PERI stats):

E. I. Du Pont de Nemours & Co.

Nissan Motor

Archer Daniels Midland (ADM)

Bayer Group

Dow Chemical

Eastman Kodak

General Electric

Arcelor Mittal

U.S. Steel

ExxonMobil
