Quake destroys chemical plants in Sichuan Province 01 June The earthquake that devastated southwestern China in May destroyed several chemical plants and disrupted chemical production and transportation throughout the Sichuan Province region. The first earthquake, which registered 7.

The official death toll is likely to top 80, and the disaster has left five million homeless. Photo courtesy: Shifang Municipal Government Communications in the region are scant but reports have emerged that two fertiliser plants at Shifang — one of which,is believed to be Shifang Zhenjiang Chemical — were destroyed.

The collapse of the plants trapped more than workers under rubble and caused an 80 tonne leak of liquid ammonia, reports suggest. Urea producer Sichuan Meifeng Chemical, melamine and fertiliser manufacturer Sichuan Chemical Works, pesticides and vinyls maker Sichuan Jinlu Group, and specialties and polycarbonate producer Chongqing Changfeng Chemical are among the companies that stopped production.

A company spokesman reported that there was some minor structural damage to buildings and that production was halted temporarily as a precautionary measure. AkzoNobel also reportedly halted operations temporarily at a powder coatings unit at Chengdu, as did Kemira at a water treatment chemicals unit at Chongqing.

The State Administration of Work Safety Beijing ordered a halt to production at chemical and energy plants, and coal mines near the epicentre to avoid further casualties. But according to the environment organisation, Greenpeace at least one chemical plant in Sichuan Province has defied the government order to halt production for safety reasons in the aftermath of the earthquake. Transportation of chemicals by rail and road in parts of Sichuan was brought to a virtual standstill. Chongqing Xinhua Chemical, another titanium dioxide maker, shut its plant because of a lack of sulphuric acid supplies.

The plant escaped damage but limitations in shipping and natural gas supply caused by the earthquake could curtail the production and availability of acetic acid, a spokesman claimed. The earthquake may force PetroChina to abandon plans for a refinery and ethylene plant at Pengzhou, near Chengdu, sources suggest.
