IN HIS ANSWER to a reader's question about mineral oil, Thomas Wulfers mentions that mineral oil for grain has not been practiced in Europe and the U.K. (see World Grain, November 2000).

I do not know about Europe in general, but in France we are using mineral oil (Grainol 82 from Esso, 24 l/T grain, registered since October 1997), mainly to suppress dust during loading of vessels or other transportation. Always very happy with your journal.
