Mailiao residents demand petrochemical plant act on safety

May 19/2011

(Focus Taiwan) -- Residents living near the Formosa Plastics Group's petrochemical complex in central Taiwan voiced anger Friday over the latest fire that broke out at the facility -- the third in a year -- and demanded that the company deal with its safety problems.

A fire broke out at one of the group's petrochemical plants in the Yunlin County complex in Mailiao Township Thursday night. No one was injured, but the blaze smoldered until Friday morning.

The township leaders asked Formosa Plastics to tell them if the latest fire generated pollution, establish an alert system in each of the town's villages, and set up an emergency notification mechanism. The groups also wanted the company to suspend operations to conduct thorough checks of all of the facility's wiring and piping and form a monitoring team on production lines.

The fire occurred less than a year after two similar incidents at the complex last July. In October last year, a fire broke out at a factory operated by a member of the Formosa Plastics Group in Chiayi County in southern Taiwan.
