Weekly News Roundup

As mentioned last week, the chemical industry's lawyers and lobbyists are busy lining up in Washington to have their say on the recently proposed Waxman-Markey bill especially concerning its cap-and-trade emissions plan.

Rhodia's GHG reduction project
Rhodia received the first Emission Reduction Units generated in Europe, coming from a greenhouse gas emission reduction project located in its French industrial site of Salindres.
