The article reports on the agreement of Ticona to move its polyoxymethylene plant at Kelsterbach, Germany to a new German location in a preliminary compromise with Fraport, the Frankfurt airport authority. This ends a dispute over plans for a new runway that will force planes to overfly the plant at an altitude of 70 meters. Fraport will pay relocation costs over five years. A final agreement between Ticona's U.S. parent, Celanese, and Fraport, is expected by May 2007.
