TSCF claims for full transparency – Disaster in French city

TSCF claims for full transparency regarding the disaster that occurred on the 26th of September 2019  in the French city of Rouen.

A Lubrizol factory that was producing lubricants for engines and fuel additives burnt entirely overnight. The chemicals stored at the factory released a huge cloud of smoke that spread all over the city, and far beyond.  Some of the substances burnt are likely to be very toxic.

Government downplays the magnitude of the disaster and its implications for public health. Tests were effected at various locations in the city but  government conceals their results or delays their publishing.

TSCF claims for full transparency regarding this matter. We call for independent tests and the involvement of civil society into the management of the disaster.
