Abstract
After a significant release of chlorine dioxide at another BC pulp mill, Cr estbrook Forest Industries Ltd., Pulp Division, Skookumchuk, BC, reviewed t he design, standard operating procedures and emergency response measures as sociated with the storage of chlorine-dioxide solution at their mill. This paper reviews the changes implemented to minimize the consequences from a c atastrophic chorine dioxide spill, up to and including the installation of a foam system to reduce the effect of chlorine dioxide gas in the near vici nity of the release, curtail thr release of chlorine dioxide gas and reduce cloud formation from the resultant pool of chlorine dioxide.
