"While vinyl chloride itself is a carcinogen, the burning of the chemical, which releases hydrogen chloride and phosgene, can be very lethal. Phosgene, a highly toxic, colorless gas with a strong odor, was notoriously used as a weapon during World War I."
The accident raises questions about safe rail transportation of vinyl chloride, a chemical that is predominantly converted to polyvinyl chloride on the site where it is produced.
#ohiotrainderailment #USA
There were approximately 20,000 rail shipments of vinyl chloride in North America in 2021, the Chlorine Institute says. Up to 10% of the vinyl chloride made in the US is transported rather than derivatized on-site.
