Industrial Chemicals

The performance of Industrial Chemicals was significantly higher in Q3 relative to 2009. Volume increased 8 percent as demand for caustic, energy and salt strongly recovered. Improved pricing across all the businesses and revenue recognized from the secondary use of salt caverns were also key drivers of the 19 percent top line growth. The cost control actions completed this year additionally contributed to the much improved performance in the quarter.
