 ICI BOARD APPROVAL FOR TIOXIDE PLANT IN CANADA
 MONTREAL, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Tioxide North America today


announced that it will build a US$150 million titanium dioxide plant at Becancour, Quebec.
 The announcement follows a meeting of the board of directors of Tioxide's parent company, Imperial Chemical Industries PLC, U.K., (NYSE: ICI), where final approval for the project was given.
 The Becancour plant will use Tioxide's new chloride process and will have an annual capacity to produce 60,000 tonnes of titanium dioxide. Intermediate product will be sent from Becancour to the finishing operation at Tracy, Quebec, where the final treatment stages will generate top-quality products for Tioxide's North American customers.
 More than 100 permanent jobs will be created at the Becancour plant. An additional 400 jobs will be created during the two-year design and construction phase. Construction of the Becancour plant will start immediately with production scheduled to commence near the end of 1994.
 The Tioxide Group Limited became a 100 percent subsidiary of Imperial Chemical Industries PLC (ICI) in December 1990. ICI is one of the world's largest science-based companies with manufacturing operations in 40 countries and annual sales of approximately US$23 billion. In North America, including the United States, Canada and Mexico, ICI employs about 25,000 people and has annual sales of more than US$6 billion.
