Australia & the UK still supply the lead for petrol for millions of people

Note: As of 14 February 2012, this newsletter has been revised, taking into account information received from the UK Environment Agency and the US National Contact Point (NCP) for the OECD Multi National Enterprise (MNE) Guidelines. The UK Environment Agency advised us that “China claims a capability” in the manufacture of tetraethyl lead (TEL) and in February 2012, we are still investigating this claim via the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Lead Management Center (ILMC) and the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP). Innospec’s website, as at 14 February 2012, still states: “Our Octane Additives business is the world's only manufacturer of tetra ethyl lead (TEL)”, as it did when this newsletter was first written. On 1 February 2012, the US NCP web-published Statement by the U.S. National Contact Point for the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises at http://www.state.gov/e/eb/oecd/usncp/links/rls/183059.htm, including the sentence: “In an October 5 letter to the U.S. NCP, Innospec declared that it had not sold TEL to Afghanistan, North Korea or Burma”.
