Support mission in crisis management
On September 26, 2019, the Lubrizol chemical plant was the victim of a serious fire with a significant fume emanation with a risk of pollution under the cloud of fumes. In the days that followed, an agri-food group present in the region called on Phylum to assist it in defining the measures to be implemented to assess and manage the risk with its suppliers, while limiting the impact on its activity and by ensuring the safety of products, both in the short and medium term.
