However, in the Formosa Petrochemical Corporation factory safety accidents investigation meeting, Formosa Corporation claimed that these 2 accidents didn’t make an obvious effect to framing and fishery industry and environment in Yunlin. The factory safety accidents were caused by the deficiency of pipeline design, not the managing problem. Yunlin county government felt very surprise and uncomprehending to this conclusion. They think that this conclusion is inconvincible and unacceptable.

He said that since The Sixth Naphtha Cracking Plant set up, it pollutes air, water, and soil here in Yunlin. People live in the neighbourhood also has the higher rate to get cancer. We hope that Formosa Petrochemical Corporation can do their best to solve these problems.

 Mr. Yeh said that the fire caused environmental pollutions. Not only the fowls died massively, but also hurt human body. However, Formosa Petrochemical Corporation said that the 2 accidents don’t have obvious effects to human body and the environment. This conclusion is absolutely unacceptable.
