Environmental Impact of Major Chemical Accidents

The direct and indirect effects of major chemical accidents are amongst the greatest concerns facing the industry, governments, environmentalists and the public in almost every country in the world today. With chemical industrial growth coming to be regarded as barometer of a country's development, and a 1000 or so new chemicals getting added to some 70,000 already in every day use around the world, there is genuine cause for concern in the matter of safety in the design, operation and handling of chemicals and chemical installations.
