The article presents news briefs related to the petrochemical industry in the Americas as of May 2006. Lubrizol has completed the sale of its food ingredients and industrial specialities businesses to private investment firm Sun Capital. The new operation, which has been renamed Emerald Performance Materials, wants to grow through acquisitions and product development, said its president and chief executive Tom Holleran. Monsanto will appeal against a ruling by a U.S. District Court that one of its patents related to glyphosate-tolerant genes was not properly enabled, and that Syngenta has not infringed two other Monsanto patents related to the company's glyphosate-tolerant corn technology.
