CIVIL PROTECTION

INFORMATION TO SURROUNDING POPULATION


Company’s operations and sanitary protection zone (SPZ):
(Prepared in accordance with Resolution of Government of the Republic of Lithuania “On informing the population in case of industrial accidents”, 22 April 2002 No.560).

Įmonės vykdoma veikla ir sanitarinės apsaugos zona (SAZ):
UAB “Vita Baltic International” factory produces elastic polyurethane foam. Foam is produced in a closed production line by the reaction between isocyanates, polyols and auxiliary materials.

Sanitary Protection Zone (SPZ):

It is the area around a stationary pollution source or multiple sources, as well as along roads in which special land use conditions are applied due to potential effects on human health.

According to the Order No. V-586 dated 19/08/2004 of Minister of Health of the Republic of Lithuania on approval of the rules for establishing sanitary protection zone boundaries and regime, Annex p.13.7, sanitary protection zone (SPZ) for foam production is set to 300 meters.

Information about hazardous materials present in the object:
Shale oil
It is stable under normal conditions, used as boiler fuel in the factory. Flammable substance, vapour can easily irritate eyes, nose and throat. It is unlikely that casual contact can cause serious damage (stored in small quantities).

Isocyanates
Reactive, flammable liquid used as one of the two main foam production raw materials in the factory. The product is highly toxic and it may cause pneumonia in case of high exposure. Lower exposure may cause bronchial inflammation, especially in susceptible individuals. Also may cause allergic reactions (stored quantities determine risk category III for the factory).

Amine catalysts
Reactive liquid, may cause chemical burns, harmful if inhaled or swallowed, and in contact with skin. Used as a catalyst in the production process (stored in very small quantities).

Niax® SiliconeL-2100
Stable liquid under normal conditions. Used as a catalyst in the production process. This substance may cause slight irritation (stored in very small quantities).

Diethanolamine
Stable liquid under normal conditions. Used as a catalyst in the production process. This substance may cause slight irritation (stored in very small quantities).

Fyrol FR-2 
Slightly reactive liquid, carcinogen. Toxic to aquatic organisms (stored in very small quantities).

PU40300 / 40D 
Slightly reactive liquid may cause slight irritation. Used in the production process (stored in very small quantities).

Information about the risk of accidents: 
Explosion and fire danger in the object is small. The most dangerous possible accident is isocyanates of materials spill. The biggest potential risk of such an accident case is temporary surrounding areas (up to ~ 800 m) air contamination.

Compounds that may be released during accidents: 
Substances stored and used in the factory may be released into the environment in case of accidents (see the next chapter). In case of fire, their combustion products, which, in addition to standard (carbon monoxide, sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and particulates), may also include small quantities of rather toxic compounds such as hydrogen cyanide. 

Information of the public: 
In case of accident, the population would be informed by the general siren and personally by phone by factory security guards, as well as personally by officers of special services, if necessary.

What to do in case of accident: 
In case of accident, you must follow instructions and requirements of special services. If wind blows to your direction, move away from your position perpendicularly to the wind direction, or (if you are at home) seal windows and vents, plug all holes with a damp cloth and wait for instructions from the special emergency services.

Other information: 
More information about the emergency response can be obtained from administration of UAB “Vita Baltic International” foam factory.
