The use of industrial gas for the production of plastics, latex paints and coatings, synthetic rubbers, polyesters, and other materials, primarily styrene, raises concerns about the possibility of exposure to hazardous air pollutants such as Benzene, styrene, and Methyl Isocyanate (MIC), which are highly exposable chemical compounds and are currently used in the petroleum industries. Recently, the state of Andhra Pradesh Visakhapatnam saw the largest styrene gas leak into the atmosphere, which LG Polymer India Company Limited caused. The LG Polymers Company produces plastics, polyesters, synthetic rubber, latex paints, and coatings. This paper discusses the risks associated with a styrene gas leak occurrence.
