Georgetown County firefighters responded about 9:00 p.m. Tuesday to the 3V Chemical plant on Pannyroyal Road, in Georgetown County. The explosion may have involved hydrochloric acid, according to early report — not confirmed.
In September 2008 an explosion occurred involving sulfuric acid, sulfur trioxide or SO3, and a worker received chemical burns.
3V headquarters are located in Bergamo, Italy. The chemical company manufactures chemicals for the textile industry.
Officials confirm there was NOT an explosion at 3v chemcial plant… some containers fell, injuring one worker.
