    Please don't spread misinformation. several diaries, including some of my own, have verified who owns Nalco.

      companies, I can understand the poster saying BP owns Nalco. It is not technically correct.

      But my mental picture is a bunch of fat-cats sitting around a boardroom table covered in variously labeled party hats.
      "Guys, it's 11:30, put on your Nalco hats, we don't want to miss our lunch reservations...."

    •  Well, I had heard it (0+ / 0-)

      But you're right about ownership. But...

      We knew there was something fishy going on, but couldn’t figure out what it might be.  Why did BP and the EPA keep on using Nalco’s Corexit, which is highly toxic to both humans and wildlife?  Turns out that Rodney F. Chase, who sits on the board of Nalco, was also a BP board member.  Likelihood that he still holds shares in both companies is very high.  So it wasn’t JUST nepotism, it was a for-profit choice.
