Months after fire swept through parts of a local Lubrizol factory, citizens in the northern France town of Rouen are complaining of strong odors still whiffing around, an issue the company said it is taking a variety of actions to combat.
The Lubrizol Disaster Association wrote a letter to the Seine-Maritime prefect on April 14, complaining about powerful smells blanketing the region while the country is under orders to remain inside due to Covid-19. “This is not acceptable,” reads the letter, a copy of which was obtained by Lube Report. “The inhabitants must remain confined and can no longer even open the windows because of the smell. We expect more firmness from [the government]. This company must create a dome to confine odors once and for all.”
