butadiene http://wfpl.org en Rubbertown Spill Releases 12 Pounds of Toxic Chemical into Air http://wfpl.org/post/rubbertown-spill-releases-12-pounds-toxic-chemical-air <p><em>UPDATE 3:15 pm:</em> Zeon Chemical&#39;s release of 12 pounds of butadiene yesterday morning was accidental. Zeon Vice President of Operations Bob Barlow told me that a gasket leak caused the release. The reportable amount of butadiene is 10 pounds, so this was just over the reportable quantity.</p> Thu, 21 Jun 2012 19:20:00 +0000 Erica Peterson 734 at http://wfpl.org
