10:27 EDTDDDuPont aims to defend itself 'vigorously' against EC investigation
DuPont (DD) Chemicals & Fluoroproducts president Thierry Vanlancker commented on the European Commission's Statement of Objections. Vanlancker said, "DuPont has complied at all times with applicable laws in its development and commercialization of HFO-1234yf, and we plan to defend vigorously against the commission's allegations and preliminary conclusions. This is one step in a long process, and while it may take years to be resolved, we are confident that the Commission will ultimately conclude that actions taken by DuPont complied with applicable laws. We will fight this every step of the way, as it has no basis in law or fact. We are disappointed in the European Commission and in the process leading up to this point. DuPont and Honeywell (HON)developed HFO-1234yf jointly in response to the European Union's Mobile Air Conditioning Directive. This regulation requires automakers to use a refrigerant with very low global warming potential for vehicle air-conditioning systems. The regulatory timeframe was short considering the significant challenges of developing and commercializing a refrigerant that meets all the automotive industry's needs. This short timeframe was a primary reason for DuPont and Honeywell working jointly to develop HFO-1234yf. Regardless of the Statement, the EU MAC Directive remains in full force today, with all new vehicles required to use a refrigerant with a GWP of under 150 by January 2017."
