Sacks of explosive chemicals seized at Manila port

(ABS-CBN) The Philippine Coast Guard on Monday announced the recovery of 120 sacks of sodium bicarbonate at the Manila port area.

Lt. Senior Grade Armand Balilo, PCG spokesman, said the shipment was seized at the Eva Macapagal Terminal in South Harbor, Manila. Sodium bicarbonate is used in the manufacture of pyrotechnics and explosives.

Balilo said the chemical shipment was found on a ship bound for General Santos City and registered under the name of Pure Chem Corp., based in Navotas City.

Authorities have yet to determine if the shipment has authorization and if the owner has a permit to transport bomb-making chemicals.

  1. This story is a stretch if you ask me. Sodium Bicarbonate is BAKING SODA. It is used in baking bread, making cookies, etc… It is also used to raise the pH of pool water. And, as the Arm and Hammer people point out in their commercials it can be used for anything from brushing your teeth to deodorizing your refrigerator. So, for me, jumping to the conclusion that the purpose here was to build a bomb just doesn’t make sense.

  2. Havn’t you ever seen the volcano science project, the main ingredient is baking soda, I think you mix it with peroxide if im not mistaking. You get a pretty interesting chemical reaction. I can only imagine what kind of chemical reactions people who live to kill can come up with. just a thought. 🙂
