The article deals with the result of the case involving German plastic producer Ticona. The judges rejected Ticona's contention that the European Union's Seveso II directive prohibits routing flights over chemical plants, saying that flight plans are not pre-determined routes, just guidelines. The court said it is Ticona's responsibility to ensure that facilities using hazardous chemicals are properly protected against air crashes.
