Business News Roundup, Dec. 3 3.12.2015 SFGate: Business & Technology
About 30 food companies announced plans Wednesdday to add scannable codes to their packaging that will offer details about ingredients, allergens and nutrition. The Grocery Manufacturers Association said the new code, called Smart Label, would appear on almost 30,000 products like shampoos, detergents, crackers and sodas by the end of 2017. The trade group publicized the program in the face of fierce lobbying over the issue of labeling foods containing genetically engineered ingredients. Worried about a Vermont law due to go into effect next summer that requires labeling of such foods, the food industry is working to get Congress to put language in an omnibus spending bill that would preempt states from passing such regulations. General Electric Co. has agreed to pay a $2.25 million penalty for releasing unsafe levels of air pollution from a hazardous waste incinerator in upstate New York and submitting false pollution control records. The U.S. Justice Department announced the settlement Wednesday ...

31 yrs on, chemical waste still a threat in Bhopal 2.12.2015 deccanherald.com
Thirty-one years since the Bhopal disaster, the Centre and the MP government continue to flip-flop on the disposing of over 340 metric tonnes of packaged chemical waste lying at the factory. More than 3,000 people lost their lives while thousand others were maimed after loads of toxic gases spewed from Union Carbide factory on the intervening night of December 2 and 3, 1984. The toxic waste, estimated to be 346 metric tonnes, is kept in a warehouse of the abandoned Union Carbide factory. The Gujarat government had once shown interest in disposing of the waste in an incinerator at Ankleshwar but backed off later in 2008 on technical grounds. Following that, nearly 40 metric tonnes of lime sludge waste from the factory was brought to Ramky Enviro Engineers Limited in Pithampur in Indore for disposal under the landfill plant. But the plan by the MP government, too, failed because of stiff opposition by the local people. In 2012, when the Supreme Court pulled up the then UPA government on disposal of ...
