EPEC Polymers Inc.

Washington, DC: (Mar-21-07) The Justice Department sued EPEC Polymers on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act. The suit alleged that EPEC Polymers and its corporate predecessor, Tenneco Chemicals, disposed of wastes that were generated from its vinyl chloride monomer facility in Pasadena, TX. In a settlement reached, EPEC Polymers will pay an estimated $23.4 million toward the Petro-Chemical Systems Inc. superfund site in Liberty County, TX. The company will perform investigation and cleanup work and part of the payment will be used to fund the EPA's oversight of cleanup activity at the site, which is also known as the "Turtle Bayou Site."
