Murky deal may help Carbide sneak back into India

February 28, 2005

A new Union Carbide scandal broke in India today as furious Bhopal survivors protested against leaked plans of a shadowy deal between Carbide’s 100% owner Dow Chemical and the Indian Oil Corporation to supply ethylene glycol technology for IOC’s Panipat complex. The process, called METEOR, is thought to belong to Union Carbide, a corporation which dare not show its face in the country where it is officially listed as a criminal fugitive from justice, having failed for 13 years to turn up to the Indian court where it stands accused of the criminal homicide of more than 20,000 people.

The circumstances of the proposed deal are surrounded by controversy, and Bhopal survivors’ groups are lobbying politicians to investigate.
