Posted by Ulrich Schulz, Environmental News Service article The story of the Mitsubishi Chemical Company is a tale of chemical warfare and political pressure.
It is also a tale about how a company with a long history of chemical safety has been in charge of managing one of the most sensitive areas of the Chinese economy.
Mitsubishis chemical legacyMitsubais chemical industry has a rich history.
In 1949, Mitsubishin, the first Japanese company to develop chemical fertilizers, acquired the rights to the Japanese-owned company Chiba Sori, which had developed chemicals to treat plants in Japan.
The company then began developing a wide variety of pesticides for use in agriculture and in the construction industry.
In the 1950s and 1960s, Mitsubais first-generation insecticides and fungicides were used in Japan, China and elsewhere.
They were also widely used in the United States and elsewhere in the Pacific Rim.
Mitsu is a member of the Japanese Chemical Industry Association.
Its chief executive, Hirokazu Matsui, who has been Mitsubashi president since 1989, is also its vice chairman and the chairman of the board.
Matsui is known for his close ties to the government and has long been a champion of the government’s domestic policy in the fields of health, environment and development.
He was also the chairman for much of Mitsubashis long history as a producer of chemical fertilisers and insecticides.
Matsui was the president of Mitsubaisin until 2005, when he resigned in disgrace amid allegations that he mishandled millions of dollars in corporate assets.
He is now a member, along with Mitsubushi, of the World Resources Institute.
Matsuura, who had been president of the company from 1993 to 2006, took over as CEO in 2006, becoming its first non-Japanese chairman since the 1930s.
He has been a staunch critic of the ruling Communist Party and a vocal critic of Japanese foreign policy.
Metsuda, who took over in 2010, was the only non-British member of Mitsuma’s board of directors.
His predecessor was Nobutoshi Fukuyama, who was appointed to the board in 1987 after Matsui’s death.
Mitsumas foreign policy and environmental recordMitsumas history of environmental policy is one of its few bright spots.
It was under Matsui that Mitsubasa was responsible for setting up the first marine research institute, which Mitsumasu now runs.
Mitsubus also had a long record of promoting the use of environmentally friendly technologies in the area of the economy, including the use, from the 1970s, of polycarbonate plastic in the roof of buildings and of biofuels in the manufacture of fuel.
It was also in the 1970, after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, that Mitsuba began to diversify into nuclear energy, the countrys first foray into the industry.
The Mitsuboshi nuclear power plant at Mitsubura, a small town in Fujian province, opened in 1974.
It became Mitsubayashi Nuclear Power Station in 1976, and Mitsubase power plant in 1983.
The Mitsubasha nuclear power station is still operating.
The power plant has been largely unused, but the plant has helped Mitsubas reputation as a green power producer.
In 2013, Mitsumashas energy demand rose by over 3.6 percent, the most rapid growth rate in more than 20 years.
Mishas reputationMitsumi was the first company to build a plant in the southern Fujian Province.
The facility was named after Mitsubushis first director, who served from 1925 to 1939.
Mitsuzus construction of the plant was so ambitious that the Japanese government initially balked at building it.
Mitsu’s first reactor was built in 1954.
By the late 1960s the plant had been operating for more than half a century.
It also had its share of problems, including leaks and contamination of its water supply.
In 1968, Mitsushas environmental department commissioned a study into the plant, which found that the plant should have been built by another company.
Mitsushis responseMitsuzus environmental department took the project to a civil court in Fujibashi.
Mitsubai’s attorney said the company was negligent in its management of the nuclear plant, but Mitsuba had argued that it had the right to design and build the plant.
The judge sided with Mitsuba, and the project was scrapped in 1972.
After the nuclear disaster, the government tried to find a buyer for the plant and offered Mitsubans $10 billion for the project.
The government said it was unable to make a fair offer because of Mitsumase’s reputation for secrecy.
In 1979, Mitsuzas nuclear reactor was decommissioned, and a new plant, the Mitsumasa nuclear power reactor, was built.
The new plant is expected to be operational in the late 2020s.
In the early 2000s
