Dyno Nobel Inc. to Pay $257,167 Civil Penalty to Settle Alleged Violations of the Clean Air Act
Oct 18 13
Dyno Nobel Inc. has agreed to pay a $257,167 civil penalty to settle alleged violations of the Clean Air Act (CAA), Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) at its facilities in the cities of Louisiana and Carthage, Mo. Inspections at the two facilities in 2010 revealed the CAA violations and resulted in EPA Region 7 issuing an Administrative Compliance Order in January 2011. Neither of Dyno Nobel's Risk Management Programs (RMPs) fully complied with all regulatory requirements. Federal RMP regulations require facilities to have processes in place to safely store and handle hazardous chemicals. In addition to the Risk Management Program violations, Dyno Nobel failed to immediately notify the National Response Center, the State Emergency Response Commission, and the Local Emergency Response Committee of an accidental release of sulfuric acid that occurred at the Carthage facility on May 9, 2012, violating CERCLA and EPCRA regulations, respectively. The Louisiana, Mo., facility stored approximately 1.6 million pounds of anhydrous ammonia, or 160 times the threshold quantity. The facility also stored approximately £1.5 million of nitric acid, or 100 times the threshold quantity.
