Earthquake Site of Chuanxindian, Shifang
It takes less than a minute and it’s completely free. By Hepeng Jia 16 May In Shifang city, 50km east of the epicentre, two fertiliser shivang were destroyed by the quake, releasing 80 tonnes of liquid ammonia.
Local residents were quickly evacuated and the leaks brought under control, but up to plant workers may have been buried in the wreckage. A number of phosphorous mines in Qingping, km from the epicentre, also collapsed, burying hundreds of miners.
On 14 May, the ministry and the local government announced that no significant change in the quality of drinking water had been detected. While two sampling sites close to the damaged fertilizer plants in Shifang had revealed small increases in the levels of ammonia and nitrogen, water from the area would still shufang safe to drink after processing.
She exrthquake that, once reconstruction begins, earthqua,e chemical plants will not be built to higher standards. Meanwhile, as government agencies have stepped up efforts to prevent water contamination, Chinese geochemists are calling for more studies looking at the effects of earthquakes on water chemistry.
Water from sites as far away as km from earthquake epicentres have been found to contain elevated levels of radon up to two years before an earthquake hits, Zhang says. Carefully monitoring radon levels could help to predict where and when earthquakes might occur in future.
That is likely to send domestic fertiliser prices – already high due to the soaring costs of raw materials – even higher.
But Jing Wang, a petrochemical analyst at Shanghai-based Oriental Securities, earthqquake that the earthquake may not affect fertiliser prices because much of the area hit by the earthquake is farmland.
