Weekly News Roundup

I'm back from my short vacation and I am swamped with looming deadlines unfortunately. Because of that, some of my weekend news this week are from ICIS news (which is subscription based) so pls. bear with me if the links do not go straight to the company/organization's press releases.

Arizona closes plant
Arizona Chemical confirmed to ICIS news that will permanently close its chemical plant in Port St Joe, Florida, in July, affecting about 77 jobs. The Port St Joe plant produces pine-based rosins, rosin esters and fatty acids for the adhesives, oleochemicals and inks industries.

Green cement JV
The Polish office for Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) has approved a ‘green cement’ joint venture between Ciech and French construction materials giant Lafarge, reported ICIS news. The base material for the cement would come from converting industrial fly ash from a Soda Polska Ciech sodium carbonate plant in central Poland.
