Archer Daniels Midland Co.

Chicago - The US Environmental Protection Agency filed charges against the company for allegedly violating federal clean air laws. Archer violated federal hazardous air pollutant regulations for pharmaceutical manufacturing because it did not test equipment, or do proper monitoring and reporting. It also violated regulations designed to protect stratospheric ozone by failing to keep track of chlorofluorocarbon refrigerant leaks from chillers at its Illinois plant. Archer will pay a $325,000 penalty and spend $1.02 million to install 58 seal-less pumps and 15 seal-less agitators. (Oct-04-06) [ALL HEADLINE NEWS: CLEAN AIR]
