07/31/2013

In the aftermath of the West, TX tragedy, an interagency task force is looking for recommendations of best practices to ensure the safety and security of ammonium nitrate.  At the request of EPA, IME prepared Guidelines covering regulations and best practices for the manufacture, storage, and transportation of ammonium nitrate.  In the transmittal letter to EPA, IME also offers to distribute the work product of the interagency task force to members and those with whom we conduct ammonium nitrate business.
