Human Error Leads to Gas Release

Acknowledgement to Chartis Insurance
A “misoperation” occurred during a chemical reactor startup when a plant operator activated the wrong controls, which resulted in pressure build up in the reactor, thus activating the release valve. Both ammonia and propylene gas were released into the air resulting in nearby residents being exposed and seeking medical treatment at various area medical centers for alleged injuries. Approximately 12,000 alleged bodily injury claims were received.
