Determination of cause: Mission ended after chemical accident in Mannheim

A week and a half after the chemical accident in the port of Mannheim, the last barrels have been recovered from the accident container. The emergency services began on Friday to dismantle their equipment. The city of Mannheim announced that the container would also be removed by a special company. The salvage went smoothly and without incident on the second day. 17 people were slightly injured by the escape of toxic gases from the container on Tuesday last week.

The chemical group BASF, which wanted to sell the barrels with hydrosulfite to Turkey, is continuing to investigate the cause. A spokesman for the company said that external and internal experts were examining each of the almost 200 barrels. These were brought to the company's own areas by the terminal operator Contargo.

The spokesman explained that it was not yet possible to say in which direction the investigation of the cause could go.
