Shell Chemical says it is evaluating a site in Pennsylvania for a new, world-scale ethane cracker that will mostly serve the U.S. northeast. The company has signed a land option agreement with a zinc producer for a parcel about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.
 
The U.S., the E.U., and Japan have launched a joint challenge to China’s rare earth export restrictions in the World Trade Organization.

Evonik has agreed to sell its colorants business to Arsenal Capital Partners, a private equity firm. The business generated about $171 million in revenue in 2011.
 
Around the Web:
 
A column in The New York Times throws some cold water on the idea that oil and gas drilling can be a jobs bonanza for the U.S.
 
An increasing number of U.S. manufacturers are ‘nearshoring,’ that is, locating operations in Mexico, in Industry Week.
