DuPont has reached a deal to buy MECS, which owns proprietary technology on converting pollutants into sulfuric acid, for an undisclosed amount. The deal is expected to boost DuPont's sustainability portfolio and broaden the company's "addressable" market for green technologies. "The markets are highly attractive to us. DuPont can add value to the sulfuric acid offerings with our technology, licensing, proprietary equipment, consulting and training resources," said James R. Weigand, president of DuPont's Sustainable Solutions unit.
