Clean Air Violations

Washington, DC: (Oct-29-07) The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 brought charges against Spectro Alloys Corp., alleging that the company violated the clean air laws at its aluminum recovery plant at 13220 Doyle Path Road in Rosemount, MN. The suit was filed after an investigation revealed that there were severe violations of the federal Clean Air Act at the facility.

As part of a settlement reached, Spectro Alloys agreed to pay a $70,923 penalty, resolving the allegations. Testing in May 2007 showed that Spectro is now meeting the emission limits for dioxins and furans. Sources state that there is evidence that dioxins may cause liver damage and probably cause cancer in humans, and furans may cause cancer in humans. Under the agreement, Spectro also demonstrated to EPA that it is currently maintaining the required afterburner inspection records. [RELIABLE PLANT: CLEAN AIR VIOLATIONS]
