LONDON (ICIS)--The EU's anti-dumping duty on dicyandiamide (DCD) from China is due to end on 16 November, the European Commission said on Friday.

However, the Commission said that EU-based producers could file a request to have the expiry of the anti-dumping duty reviewed.

The EU imposed a 49.1% duty in 2007, following a complaint by German producer AlzChem, which at the time was part of specialty chemicals major Evonik. Evonik sold the business in 2009.

Media officials at AlzChem could not immediately be reached for additional comment.

DCD is used as a component to make ingredients and chemical intermediates for the pharmaceuticals, water, pulp and paper, textile, leather and other industries. It is a key element of the nitrogen — carbon — nitrogen (NCN) chain.
