Enforcement action

The Environment Agency issued an enforcement notice against Henkel Surface Technologies on 11 June following a chemical spillage. The incident occurred while loading a tanker with a liquid metal treatment toner containing sodium nitrate. Two tonnes of the chemical was spilled some of which escaped into surface water drains and into the ground. The notice requires the company, based at Belvedere in Kent, to remediate any contamination, ensure suitable training for staff and improve spill containment at the site.
