Today we came across an interesting article about Dow Chemical selling off its chlorine operations.
Considering the revenue that is generated from chlorine and other chemicals sales, we have to wonder why the operations are being sold.
Are there concerns about the future liabilities associated with Chlorine?
If history has taught us anything, harmful chemicals such as DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) and Asbestos have been banned for good reason. Could it be that Chlorine is heading down the same slippery slope.
