The chemicals found in industrial diesel are dangerous and potentially life-threatening, according to a report by the Institute of Chemical Safety (ICSS).
ICSS, a UK-based non-profit, said it has identified 11 industrial diesel components in industrial waste that are known to cause cancer, birth defects and other health problems.
ICS’s report says the chemicals found include benzene, formaldehyde, hexane, formic acid, phenol, and triacetone.
It said the most common industrial diesel component is benzene.
The chemicals also appear to cause damage to human and animal cells.
They are not only toxic to human cells, but can also cause cancer in laboratory animals.
For example, a rat’s pancreas can be affected by the chemical, according the report.
One of the most dangerous industrial diesel constituents is formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde, which can be found in the exhaust of commercial diesel vehicles, is used to make plastics, paints, and sealants.
Formic acid and formic chloride are two of the more common industrial compounds found in formaldehyde-containing components.
Formic acid is a carcinogen and is known to damage human and animals’ health.
It is also known to irritate the skin and cause burns.
In addition, formacrylate, a compound that can be formed in the combustion of diesel exhaust, is known carcinogen.
As well as formaldehyde and formacrylic acid, a chemical known to form a gas when heated, there are also industrial diesel waste products that are more toxic to humans than formaldehyde or formacrate.
Industrial waste also contains hydroxybenzene, an organic solvent that is known for its carcinogenic properties.
While there are no clear data on the safety of industrial diesel, it is likely to be the most hazardous component of the waste stream.
