Industry is often asked who is responsible for cleaning up a spill once a truck or railcar leaves an industrial facility. Regulations lay out who is responsible for what. According to Texas Commission on Environmental Quality regulations, if a truck or railcar has left a manufacturing facility and is in an accident that causes a container to break open and spill chemicals, the owner or operator of the truck or railcar is responsible to initiate spill containment and clean up. However, the manufacturer of the chemical still needs to provide expert advice on response and containment by providing Safety Data Sheets (SDS) or assisting with cleanup. The TCEQ may step in and conduct cleanup if they think cleanup is inadequate and then send a bill for their services. Many Deer Park CAC plants are members of the American Chemistry Council and thus committed to its Responsible Care program, whose principles call for exercising stewardship in various ways over the lifetime of the products your company makes.
