Island Chemical Loses Superfund Status

     WASHINGTON (CN) – After 14 years of intensive clean-up, the Island Chemical/Virgin Island Chemical site will be delisted, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.




     The facility, in southwest St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, was used to manufacture of pharmaceutical chemicals, primarily phenacetin, ethoxyquin, and quinidine. In 1985, Virgin Islands Chemical Company also began producing benzyl salicylate, which is used as a perfume fixative, as a solvent for synthetic musk, and is an ingredient in sunscreen lotion.
