Bayer CropScience has decided not to restart the transitional production of methyl isocyanate (MIC) at its site in Institute, West Virginia. As a result, the company will move forward immediately with decommissioning of the reconfigured MIC and associated production units as well as the closure of Woodbine.

Bayer CropScience was planning to start the MIC unit and begin transitional production of the Temik brand insecticide early this year, but uncertainty over delays has led the company to the conclusion that a restart of production can no longer be expected in time for the 2011 growing season.
