Opposition party in Taiwan appeals to halt Formosa Plastics’ expansion projects

23-Jul-10
A call to prohibit continuation of Formosa’s expansion projects has been made in Taiwan. The Formosa Plastics Group should not be allowed to continue expansion of the sixth naphtha cracker on account of frequent accidents, said the opposition Democratic Progressive Party, as per Taiwan News. The government has been urged to set up a nation wide framework to handle industrial accidents as the current fire emergency equipment at the plant in Mailiao, Yunlin County, is insufficient. Since the plant started operating 18 years ago, there have been several incidents at the site, while there are also more cases of cancer registered in Mailiao than in any other Yunlin County township.
