When they built a MIC unit, they were offered a site outside the town. Although the exact events leading up to the disaster are still disputed, the findings of an Indian government investigation provide the most compelling theory for what happened. A routine maintenance procedure was denoted as the ultimate cause of the accident. Around pm on 2 December, , while a worker washed some of the plant's piping, several drainage nozzles for the water were blocked by debris.
The backlog of water forced it back into the plant's main piping system, leaving it free to flow throughout the plant. At about pm, the water entered one of the de-pressurized storage tanks for MIC. The combination of water and MIC produced an exothermic reaction that quickly grew out of control.
Within two hours, the immense heat and pressure from the reaction triggered an emergency release valve, allowing 41 tons of excess MIC to escape into the Bhopal atmosphere. The failed maintenance procedure does not fully explain the magnitude of the disaster and several hidden causes of the leak can be traced to UCIL management practices that had been accumulating years before the event. In the early 's, the UCIL plant was running at a loss due to reduced pesticide demands.
