Chemical Explosion Caught On Video At Eastman Chemical

Another chemical explosion took place, and it seems that the trend will continue to ramp up in frequency with the removal of investigatory committees under the current administration. This video was caught on tape, and luckily no one was injured. It serves as a warning to all chemical industry leaders as to the possible devastation these small incidents can cause. The explosion took place at Eastman Chemical Company. Shelter responded by saying “We appreciate the cooperation from all our neighbors and community during this time. In an event like this, we take every precaution to ensure the safety of our employees and our site neighbors,” the statement said.

It’s too early to tell what the exact cause of the explosion was, but the estimated damage is astronomical. Most reports and statements from the company estimate the destruction to be near $100 million dollars by the end of the year. The operations at the plant have begun again, but repairs are underway for the massive area damaged. The investigations to incidents like these are usually boiled down at best to improper maintenance. Luckily no one was inside, which led no one to be injured. The company can still receive fines if this is in fact the case, although the rates vary greatly.
