Chemours joins fortune 500 as Wilmington NC Residents Foot the Bill for Clean Drinking Water

Chemours was spun off from DuPont in July 2015 and was labeled a “bankruptcy waiting to happen” by stock market analysis.

Instead, they have just reported a net income of $161 million.  That’s a $179 million increase from last year at this quarter – a profit gain of more than 1,000 percent, according to Delaware Online.  Chemours’ sales grew to $1.6 billion in the second quarter, and much of that growth occurred in the fluoroproducts unit, the same fluorproducts that have contaminated the drinking water for more than 200,000 Wilmington NC residents.   

Chemours netted $161 million but they refuse to respond to requests to provide clean drinking water alternatives to the resident’s whose water they contaminated?

Clean Cape Fear has written a petition that will be delivered to Chemours and we hope to have the -voices of every one of our 200,000 plus residents heard.
