Refrigeration Co. Pays for Environmental Violations

According to a News Release by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “A refrigerated warehouse company has agreed to pay $75,000 to settle a case brought by the US Environmental Protection Agency for Clean Air Act violations at three cold-storage facilities in Massachusetts.”

While it is not readily apparent in the brief news release, it appears the violations may have been more “procedural” in nature.  The two specific mentions in the release include, “…facilities failed to certify to EPA that they had appropriate CFC recovery or recycling equipment…” and “…company technician serviced appliances containing CFCs on various occasions without being certified by an approved certification program.”

Violations, whether they result in an actual release or are administrative, can be costly.
