Corn Byproduct Permit

Indianapolis, IN: (Nov-23-07) The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) brought charges against Tate and Lyle, an Indiana corn byproduct company, alleging that it failed to apply for the proper permits when it modified several corn byproduct dryers at its Lafayette South Plant. As part of a settlement reached, the company agreed to pay a $188,100 penalty and to follow an EPA order requiring the company to apply for a state permit. The permit would incorporate best available emission control technology for volatile organic compounds and carbon monoxide.

As a result of this action, EPA officials estimated that VOC emissions would be reduced by 1.4 million pounds per year and CO emissions by 423,108 pounds per year. US Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 enforcement actions in Indiana in 2007 will reduce pollution by more than 36 million pounds and result in regulated entities spending more than $1.8 billion on pollution controls to correct past environmental violations and help prevent future ones.
