The article presents news briefs on environmental concerns in the chemical industry. The British Coatings Federation has published an information note that can be used to challenge the misunderstanding on the environmental impact of volatile organic compounds. Holliday Pigments, a manufacturer of ultramarine pigments, was presented with the Sustainable Development Award from the Chemical Industries Association. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has cited Dow Chemical for alleged clean-air violations.
