ELF Autochem (Chemical Company)greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I live in a medium-sized town (around 20,000-30,000 people) in Central Ohio. There's an ELF Autochem not more than 2 miles from my house...
With that said, I've noticed with some concern that Dow and many other large chemical companies are closing down around Jan. 1. Then I also read the reports about many small chemical companies not being Y2K compliant. With that in mind, I called the local ELF Autochem, need less to say, they were less than helpful. As soon as I asked if they were closing down for Jan. 1, they started asking for my name and address, then passed me along. Within a few minutes, I was transferred two or three times. I finally ended up with the office manager who told me to check out their website (turned out invalid, I was told "http://www.elf-autochem.com" and I get nothing. Verified it twice with the office manager too.). She also said that they didn't have any dangerous chemicals at the plant.
When I tried to look up ELF Autochem's site on Search, the only thing I've been able to find so far is lawsuits. I'll try more search engines, but I'm wondering - Has anyone else run into this same hassle? Does anyone know the homepage for ELF Autochem?

Are you sure it's not ELF Aquitaine?

It's ATO, not auto.

Try http://www.epa.gov:9966/srmpdcd/owa/rmp_proc_qry_p3.plans_page for elf-atochem's risk management plans. (I didn't see one for Ohio).
Here's what should be on that page (sorry about the formatting):
Risk Management Plans Click on the underlined Plan Sequence Number to view the Risk Management Plan (RMP) for the facility. The plan sequence number is a number that uniquely identifies each Risk Management Plan in RMP*Info. This record list is sorted by state, facility name, receipt date, and plan sequence number.

Just figured out that the previous link won't work correctly. Instead try http://www.epa.gov/enviro/index_java.html and search for elf-atochem (I could only get results by leaving the state blank).
