Agrium US Inc. and Royster-Clark Inc.

Washington, DC: (Feb-06-07) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) fined the nitric acid production facility in October 2006 for making construction modifications to a North Bend, OH facility in the mid-1990s without first obtaining necessary federal pre-construction permits and installing the required pollution control equipment. The un-permitted modifications caused the facility to emit more nitrogen oxides (NOx) than allowed by federal law. The facility will pay $750,000 in civil penalties to settle violations of the New Source Review provisions of the Clean Air Act uncovered by EPA. Agrium US Inc. and Royster-Clark Inc. agreed to install state-of-the-art pollution control equipment at the facility that will reduce NOx emissions by more than 200 tons per year.
