Bromine (UN1744) is utilized in many industries, including agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, high-performance rubber, polymers, biocides, and energy, as well as in chemicals used in the oil and gas sector.
It’s a vital component of numerous industrial processes; however, it is extremely hazardous due to its corrosive properties. According to the EU’s harmonized classification system, bromine is fatal if inhaled, with the capacity to severely burn the skin and eyes. It is also extremely toxic to marine life. Therefore, its safe and secure transport and storage is of vital importance, for people and the planet.
THIELMANN designs and manufactures containers for hazardous goods with expertise and precision, placing safety and sustainability at the core of our mission. THIELMANN offers solutions of every scale for the transport and storage of bromine and other hazardous substances, including 8,350-liter intermodal ISO tank containers.
