EPA reaches agreements with two companies

United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reached agreements with Beck Aluminum Corp. and Remelt Services Inc. in Ohio on alleged clean-air violations at Remelt’s aluminum recovery plant in Cleveland. Beck will pay $70,000 and Remelt will pay $10,000 penalties.

The agreement with Remelt resolves EPA allegations that the company failed to comply with federal dioxin and furan emission control requirements for its aluminum melting furnace. Specifically, EPA alleged that Remelt failed to meet requirements for proper operation, monitoring, planning, recordkeeping and notification.

EPA’s agreement with Beck resolves allegations that Beck had supervisory authority over operations at the Remelt plant from September 2003 through December 2005 and was responsible for compliance with the Clean Air Act.
