By Chemical Engineering |

Du Pont (Wilmington, Del.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5825-550) and the city of Dongying, China, have reached an agreement for constructing a 200,000-m.t./yr plant for producing titanium oxide, a pigment used in coatings, plastics and the paper industry.

The plant will be wholly owned by Du Pont, and will be the company’s largest single investment project outside the U.S.
