Another hazardous chemical leak reported at Colorado’s Suncor refinery


For the second time in the past month, the Suncor refinery in Commerce City, Colorado admitted there was a release of elevated levels of sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide into the adjacent neighborhood.

It occurred Friday night and state health officials put out a warning over the weekend there emissions might exceed permitted levels reported the Colorado Sun.

The plant has been targeted by local officials and environmentalists who contend the emissions are an ongoing violation of environmental justice provisions in federal and state rules.
