Sun Chemical wants to clean up the site of its former pigment manufacturing plant in Staten Island's Rosebank section so it can be sold to a developer for either industrial or residential use, according the the state Department of Environmental Conservation [DEC].

The company, which shut down operations at the 101-year-old facility on Jan. 31, intends to clean up toxic materials -- including chlorinated solvents, volatile organic compounds, metals and polychlorinated biphenyls -- which have seeped into the ground over the years.
