DuPont officially announced in 2013 that DuPont Refrigerants would be separated into a brand new company called Chemours.  The conversion of the refrigerants division into this new independent company was completed in 2015.  While no reason was given for the creation of this new company, theories suggest that DuPont hopes to avoid future antitrust breakups by the federal government.  

Chemours now encompasses all of DuPont’s chemical divisions including Titanium Technologies, Chemical Solutions in addition to refrigerants.
