WILLEMSTAD – This morning there were a lot of complaints about the unbearable stench coming from the oil refinery Isla. At this time it was worse than ever, says the SMOC. The environmental movement says that the measurements are showing that.
At Boca Sami an elderly person remained inside today because of the Isla-odor. Isla exceeded about twice the annual standard for sulfur dioxide, which produces the smell of rotten eggs, according to SMOC.
Also agreements about measurements in Julianadorp are not being kept according to the environmental organization. Soldiers of the Department of Defense may not live in the neighborhoods west of the refinery.
