 DU PONT STARTS UP TiO2 PLANT IN BRAZIL
 WILMINGTON, Del., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Du Pont (NYSE: DD) has


begun operation of its "Ti-Pure" titanium dioxide pigment sizing and packaging facility in Uberaba, Brazil.
 The plant receives semi-finished pigment from Du Pont's North American plants and performs the final processing steps in Brazil. This facility will process 15,000 to 20,000 tonnes of pigment a year.
 The plant is located on a 235-acre Du Pont site in the state of Minas Gerais, about 200 miles northwest of Sao Paulo. The finishing plant was built using a modular construction concept and is designed to be expanded to a fully integrated TiO2 manufacturing plant.
 "The start-up of this facility represents an important step in our global expansion program and allows us to provide improved service to our Brazilian customers," said Dennis Reilley, vice president and general manager, white pigment and mineral products in Du Pont Chemicals.
 Du Pont is the world's largest producer of titanium dioxide with capacity of more than 750,000 tonnes. The company has production facilities in Edge Moor, Del.; New Johnsonville, Tenn.; Antioch, Calif.; DeLisle, Miss; and Altamira, Mexico. A plant is under construction in Taiwan and one is planned for Korea.
