Atofina Chemicals riverview plant gears up to restart production in sulfonyl unit

Atofina Chemicals, Inc. is gearing up to restart the remaining portions of their Riverview plant in mid-November, 2001. The plant is now operating 80% of its operating units.

The plant was affected by fire on July 14, 2001.

"We have started our Anhydrous sulfonyl production and currently anticipate restarting the reaction area of the sulfonyls unit of the plant in mid-November," said Joe Alli, plant manager. "The sulfonyls unit was directly affected by the fire, thus, necessitating a complete safety review and clean up activities in that area. Much of that work is now completed, and several modifications have been made. The actions taken will result in a more reliable plant, and enable Atofina to provide improved service to its customers. We intend to restart the balance of the production areas during the remainder of the month. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our employees who have pulled together in this difficult situation," Alli added.
