Chicago Manufacturer Fined $30,946 For Alleged Clean Air Act Violations

The Illinois Pollution Control Board recently accepted the parties’ stipulation and proposed settlement in People v. Apollo Plastics Corp., Case No. PCB 09-108, which concerned the defendant’s facility for manufacturing automobile dashboard components located at 5333 North Elston Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.

The State alleged that the defendant violated the Illinois Environmental Protection Act and its implementing regulations by “failing to obtain requisite permits before construction of emission units, failing to obtain a Clean Air Act Permit Program permit, failing to comply with the Board’s volatile organic emission limitations regulation for plastic parts coating, failing to maintain required records, failing to timely submit an Emission Reduction Market System baseline application, failing to submit annual emission reports, failing to submit seasonal emission reports, and failing to hold allotment trading units.”

Under the terms of the settlement, the defendant does not affirmatively admit the alleged violations but agrees to pay a civil penalty of $30,946.
