Since mesothelioma in adults is only caused by asbestos exposure, it’s a safe bet that Olin bears some or all of the responsibility for what you’re going through now.
Many industrial facilities built in earlier decades relied on asbestos for insulation, fireproofing, and tamping down certain dangerous chemical reactions, but in chemical plants like Olin’s, the need for these functions was extreme.
For plant safety, and protection of workers, asbestos was widely applied, either on its own or as a component of composite parts.
Even safety equipment and clothing would have included asbestos in chemical plants like Olin Corporation facilities.

The problem is that asbestos is not an especially stable mineral.
It is composed of thousands of tiny, rigid fibers, and while this makes it ideal for fabricating into various shapes for specific purposes, it also means that as any component ages, it is prone to release a fine dust of small, sharp particles that can be inhaled by nearby workers.
And in many Olin Corporation facilities, that’s exactly what happened, over and over again.
For workers in the plants, this means that their lungs may have been damaged by chronic exposure to asbestos.
In the worst cases, the small fibers have provoked nearby cells to turn cancerous as a result of years of irritation and inflammation.
When the lining of the lungs or abdomen become filled with cancer cells, the disease is called mesothelioma.
