Recently, an aluminum refinery in Ajka, Hungary spilled toxic sludge over nearby towns causing at least four deaths and over 120 injuries.
In its liquid form, the sludge is wreaking havoc, causing severe burns to the townspeople, devastating agriculture, flooding homes, and killing livestock around the refinery as it pours into the Marcal River. As the wet sludge dries, fears are developing about the toxicity becoming airborne in the form of lead-filled dust.
This sludge, considered non-toxic by European Union pollution standards, is not only affecting Hungary. As it leaks into the Marcal River, it also floods into the Danube, one of the area's largest waterways.
Tell European Commissioner for the Environment about the need for stricter policies on industrial waste in Europe.
