The article reports on the selection of Mitsui Chemicals technology by Thai Polypropylene, part of Siam Cement Group, for its No. 3 polypropylene project in Mab Ta Phut, Rayong province, Thailand. The plant will be constructed downstream from SCG Chemicals' planned naphtha cracker and is expected to be completed in 2010. The government is conducting an audit of real emissions in the area, which could force some companies to invest more in reducing pollution.
