Eastman Kodak wants to keep its method of cutting toxic chemical emissions from its photographic complex a secret.
Kodak told the New Jersey State Dept. of Environmental Conservation that its report on the plan developed by its engineers should remain confidential in order to protect trade secrets about how Kodak manufactures film.
State officials are honoring the request while lawyers review the issue.
Kodak says its plan is more efficient, environmentally superior and probably less costly than conventional pollution control schemes.
