The Aluf Plastics Plant has been negatively affecting the community of Orangetown for decades. While there is some data on air quality impacts, such as increased levels of Acrolein as well as Ethyl Acetate, Cyclohexane, Methylene Chloride, Hexane, Ethanol, Chloroform, 2-Hexanone (MBK), and Isopropanol, the health impacts of exposure to these are unknown. Our children are left covering their faces with their shirts and asking when it will stop smelling. @CA4O welcomes any help to process the information we have and figure out what else can be done to stop these noxious odors.

This type of plastic causes pollution of air which causes a deterioration of concrete structure as well as in human being it causes skin irritation, eye sight problem, brain hambrain, bad physical effect etc on the body. It also causes water pollution.

Thanks @Engineerjaykumar! Do you know if there are specific chemicals/compounds tied to specific effects?

For example, could you say that high levels of chloroform are specifically tied to eyesight problems?
