Exxon Mobil Corp. had equipment failure that led to a release of gases from its Joliet, Illinois, refinery, according to a filing to the National Response Center.
U.S. refineries must notify the response center if they release hazardous substances in excess of reportable quantities, according to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, commonly known as Superfund.
Bloomberg News couldn’t immediately verify that the information in the NRC filing was accurate.
