KIEV, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - At least five people were killed and another seven were injured after an ammonia emission at Ukraine’s chemical concern Stirol.
The accident occurred at 15:20 Moscow time while workers were conducting regular maintenance works at an ammonia collector at the plant located in Gorlovka, the Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine.
The plant’s owner said an ammonia spill posed no threat to residents of nearby settlements.
“According to preliminary information, a liquid ammonia pipeline had depressurized, which caused the accident,” the company said. “The concern’s emergency service liquidated failures within 30 minutes. A special commission is investigating the accident.”
