China to curb dangerous chemicals movement ahead of holidays

September 02/2009
SHANGHAI (ICIS news) -- China plans to restrict transportation of dangerous chemicals in parts of the country from September to mid-October during holidays to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic, industry sources said on Tuesday.

“The restriction level will be the same as we experienced in last year’s Olympics period,” an official from State Administration of Work Safety told ICIS news.

China"s National Day holidays from 1 October to 8 October this year overlap the traditional mid-autumn festival on 3 October. Besides normal festivities, China will also hold a military parade to mark the occasion.

Chinese traders said transports of chemicals like acetone, phenol and toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) in east China, north China, especially in the provinces near Beijing, would be strictly restricted.

According to local media reports Sun Huashan, vice director of the State Administration of Work Safety, told a meeting of officials and producers late last month that the government would strengthen the supervision of dangerous chemicals production, transportation and storage to prevent accidents during the holidays.
