Tropical Storm Fay Threatens to Disrupt Operations for Hundreds of Industrial Plants on Florida’s Western Coast, an Industrial Info News Alert
Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Tropical Storm Fay appears to be set on a determined course for the west coast of Florida in a path of not just thousands of vacationers but also more than 340 industrial plant operations, including some of the country's largest concentration of fertilizer plants. Although this portion of the Gulf of Mexico is not populated with offshore oil and gas industry like its western neighbors, the current course of the storm does include many large industrial plants in several industries, including Food & Beverage, Chemical Processing, Metal & Minerals and Pharmaceuticals. Chemical plants in the area include some of the largest sulfuric and phosphoric acid plants in the country, such as that of The Mosaic Company (NYSE:MOS) (Plymouth, Minnesota) plant in Riverview, Florida.
