The reporter learned from the Taiyuan City Government Information Office that at 8:36 on April 17, 2021, an explosion occurred in a workshop of the Xing’an Chemical Plant in Taiyuan City. After receiving the report, the main responsible comrades of the Taiyuan Municipal Party Committee and the Municipal Government rushed to the scene as soon as possible to guide the rescue and handling of the accident, immediately activated the emergency plan, set up an emergency rescue team, and carried out rescue work. After preliminary verification, 2 people were unfortunately killed in the accident and 3 people lost contact. The handling of the accident is still in progress, the aftermath has been carried out simultaneously, and the cause of the accident is under investigation.

First express condolences to the victims. Of interest, home is within 3km of the explosion site. 1. Brief introduction of the factory The Xing’an Chemical Factory was founded in 1953 and is located in Jiancaoping District, Taiyuan City. It is my country’s largest production base for propellants and propellants and is responsible for the research, development and production of high-tech products for national defense equipment. . The video of nesmto at the moment of the explosion of the chemical plant in Taiyuan on April 17, 1532 broadcast. Because the process and products produced by the plant are very dangerous, the explosion risk is great. Because the production technology and facilities cannot limit the destructive effects of explosion accidents to a local area, once an explosion occurs, there will be a high probability of mass deaths and injuries. The high probability of losing contact means that you are close to the heartbreak, and people can’t be found. From the perspective of safety production, the possibility of explosions in such a workshop can only be reduced but cannot be completely eliminated. 2. External safety measures in the production workshop 1. Carry out strict safety design. 2. The four walls of the factory building are reinforced concrete pouring structure, and the top is a lightweight structure, which is convenient to release the explosion shock wave. 3. There is a trapezoidal protective earth embankment around the workshop. The earth embankment can absorb shock waves and fragments generated by the explosion, and guide the remaining shock to high altitude. 4. There are strict regulations on the stock of explosives and explosives in each process and the number of operators. 5. The distance between adjacent workshops is very large, which can prevent the explosion from spreading to other workshops.  Appropriate design and employees who are not afraid of danger can avoid explosion hazards to a large extent. 1. The explosion in the workshop did not affect other workshops or outside the factory. 2. I remember that when I was in elementary school, there was an explosion in an ammunition depot in the nearby Jiangyang Chemical Factory. The on-site administrator discovered that the explosives spontaneously ignited and smoked and drove away immediately. After bypassing the earth embankment, the entire ammunition depot exploded and the explosion produced a mushroom cloud. Due to the reasonable safety design, most of the explosion fragments and shock waves were absorbed by the earth embankment, the earth embankment disappeared completely, and the explosion did not spread to other ammunition depots nearby. The administrator survived, the railway wagon parked at the gate of the warehouse was blown up, and the wheelset flew hundreds of meters away. The glass of the surrounding houses was completely broken, someone was scratched by the falling glass, and the leaves and apples on the apple tree were swept away. 3. In Taiyuan in the 1990s, an explosives transporter was driving on the highway. Smoke was found in the cargo compartment during the transportation. The driver immediately drove out of the highway when he noticed it, and asked the escorts to get off the vehicle and drive the vehicle to an unmanned area in the ravine. Next, he ran away from the scene. As soon as he fell, the explosion happened. Due to the mountain barrier between the location of the explosion and the residential area, the explosion did not cause other losses. 3. The significance of the Xing’an Chemical Plant. Our country needs a large amount of explosives in both the civil engineering field and the military field. Taking into account the possibility of war, although the production of explosives and guns is a very dangerous job, in order for soldiers’ guns, artillery, and missiles to be used during a war, and in order for the People’s Liberation Army to have the ability to defend national interests, someone must take the risk. Dangerous to do. Due to the extreme dangers of the production process and the environment, as well as the limitations of technology, it is difficult for the exploding personnel to survive the occurrence of more explosives. What they can do is not to endanger others in the unfortunate event. Tribute to all military manufacturers! At the same time, we hope to improve the automation level of production and let more work be done by machinery!
