BASF in Freeport grabbed the honors of registering the first emissions event of the Brazoria County Holiday Season with a PSA valve failure in Syngas unit that caused the C-20 compressor to shutdown and upset the OXO process.

Contaminents released: Butyraldehyde,Carbon Monoxide, Isobutyraldehyde, Propane and Propylene.

Idea for the petrochemical industry: adorn your towers, vessels and such in holiday lighting, forming giant Christmas trees, giant reindeer and brightly colored holiday packages for passing motorists to enjoy during the "holiday" season.

With Christmas "under attack," as they say on a certain cable tv news channel, it is, verily, the meet & right thing to do.
