Tianji Coal suspends production after aniline leakage


LUCHENG, CHINA: Tianji Coal Chemical Industry Group whose recent aniline leakage aroused great concern in north China’s Shanxi Province was ordered to suspend production for safety overhaul. Li Xiaopeng, acting Governor of the coal-rich province, said the provincial government ordered the Tianji Coal Chemical Industry Group to stop all production and not to resume production until it met requirements.

On 31 December 2012, about 9 tonnes of aniline were leaked by a chemical plant owned by Tianji Coal Chemical Industry Group into the Zhuozhang River in Changzhi City, Shanxi.
