Joslyn Sunbank Company

Sacramento, CA: (Apr-11-07) The California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) filed suit against the Joslyn Sunbank Company of Paso Robles, a military and aerospace conduits and thermoplastics manufacturer, alleging that it violated the state's Hazardous Waste Control Law during its manufacturing process. The suit accused Joslyn Sunbank of routinely generating and treating large quantities of hazardous wastes, including corrosive plating solutions, rinse waters, and sludge, which contain cyanide, chromium, cadmium, copper, and nickel. A 2005 DTSC probe revealed that the refinery's violations could have significant health and environmental risks. DTSC inspectors observed large quantities of cyanide crystals in the floor grates in the plating area adjacent to an acid tank, where acid rinse waters drip off parts. The combination of cyanide crystals and acid can produce cyanide gas. As a settlement, Joslyn Sunbank Company agreed to pay the DTSC $495,000. [BUSINESS WIRE: HAZARDOUS WASTES]
