Oil refinery does not respond to emission incident
WILLEMSTAD – The oil refinery Isla has so far not responded to calls from concerned citizens about the huge emissions of an unknown substance. That happened yesterday afternoon. A yellow-green thick cloud came out of one of the chimneys of the refinery.
The emergency number of the Isla had been reached, but it was reported that there was nothing to worry about.
Isla is obligated to report such incidents under its nuisance permit. A judge in 2011 already indicated that the refinery is not doing that and that the refinery is not keeping a record of incidents.
