How do you account for your chlorine inventory? Would you know if you had a missing ton-container or 150-lb cylinder? The National Association of SARA Title III Program Officials (NASTTPO) provides a good reason for establishing an accurate accounting system for your chlorine inventory.
NASTTPO has produced a 2-page paper on the use of industrial chemicals as a WMD at a major sporting event. The industrial chemical used to illustrate the point is gaseous chlorine.
Scenarios are provided for a 40,000lb-tanker, ton-container and a 150lb-cylinder. The paper suggests that a 150-lb cylinder would be easier to use and be successful in creating wide spread panic and have the added benefit of making the authorities look foolish and ineffective.
