DuPont Spinoff Cuts $300M Environmental Remediation Costs

DuPont logoDuPont’s new performance chemicals company Chemours will also help DuPont shed about $300 million worth of environmental remediation costs, Delaware Online reports.

Following its separation from DuPont, Chemours will manufacture titanium dioxide, fluoroproducts and other chemicals.

Delaware Online says, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Chemours’ cleanup bill could exceed $300 million, “with ‘adverse’ circumstances possibly sending the environmental burden above $1 billion.”

More than 21 percent of Chemours’ $1.28 billion in contractual obligations at the end of 2013 involved environmental remediation, second only to raw material purchases.

Earlier this year DuPont agreed to pay $1.275 million as part of a settlement with the federal government for eight alleged releases of harmful levels of hazardous substances at its Belle, W. Va. facility between May 2006 and January 2010.

  1. Washing of hands goes back to Roman times. This similiar but cynical exercise to protect ‘business as usual’ case has a familiar ring to it. DuPed a new and duplicitious low against corporate governance and transparency.
