Rhodia Invests in Specialty Fluorinated Derivatives for Electronics and Pharmaceuticals Markets

Lyon, France , July 30,2012 — Rhodia is strengthening the positioning of its production line for specialty fluorinated aliphatic derivatives in Salindres in response to the strong growth of its strategic markets.
