Smurfit-Stone sets agreement with EPA

United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), United States Department of Justice and the state of Illinois have reached an agreement with Smurfit-Stone Container Enterprises Inc. on alleged clean-air violations at a printing plant formerly owned by the company in Schaumburg, Illinois.

The agreement resolves a complaint filed in November alleging Smurfit failed to control smog-producing volatile organic compound emissions from its printing lines and failed to meet state VOC emission credit requirements. The company agreed to pay penalties totaling $325,000, $162,500 to EPA and $162,500 to Illinois.

Smurfit has installed a thermal oxidizer to destroy its VOC emissions and has demonstrated compliance through testing. It has also met its state VOC emission credit requirements.
