HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / July 30, 2021 / On July 27, 2021, at the LyondellBasell chemical plant near LaPorte, Texas, there was a dangerous chemical release where two people were pronounced dead at the scene and 30 people were rushed to hospitals for treatment. Many other workers at the plant site were also treated.
The chemicals released included acidic acid, a very corrosive and flammable substance that can cause acute skin damage and, if inhaled, pulmonary injury can occur.
Another chemical released in the LyondellBasell was methyl iodide. Methyl iodide, in addition to being corrosive, is a flammable substance that is a known carcinogen. It is very dangerous if inhaled and causes acute skin irritation. This major chemical release is not taken lightly by the Kirk Law Firm.
