Am­mo­nia re­leased at Cour­tright plant

The Observer (Sarnia) - - NEWS -

CF In­dus­tries says no in­juries re­sulted from a re­lease of am­mo­nia Tues­day af­ter­noon at its Cour­tright Ni­tro­gen man­u­fac­tur­ing site. It hap­pened at 4:20 p.m. at the site’s urea plant, the com­pany said.“There are no off-site im­pacts and all em­ploy­ees have been safely ac­counted for,” the com­pany said. Walt An­der­son, fire chief in St. Clair Town­ship, said it re­sponded to the emer­gency at the site.“They had a small re­lease of am­mo­nia that set off their alarms,” An­der­son said. “We checked the air mon­i­tor­ing around the plant and noth­ing got off-site.” An­der­son said CF In­dus­tries was able to iso­late and shut down the unit safely. CF In­dus­tries said pro­vin­cial of­fi­cials also were no­ti­fied of the in­ci­dent.
