Explosion In Japanese Chemical Plant Could Create Diaper Shortage Parents Seek Less Filling Solutions

As so often happens, moms are left to deal with the mess.

An explosion at a Japanese chemical plant this weekend has the spectre of a global diaper shortage. The plant in the coastal city of Himeji, operated by Nippon Shokubai Co., is one of the world’s largest producers of acrylic acid, a primary ingredient used in disposable diapers. Powerful blasts rocked the facility Saturday, as firefighters were trying to control a blaze at one of the tanks containing the chemical.

Acrylic acid is a key component of superabsorbent polymers or SAP, which absorb large amounts of liquid.
