USEPA Settlement Agreement with SunCoke due to Violations

The USEPA and SunCoke have arrived at a settlement agreement due to the multiple violations that occurred at their Haverhill facility.

Here is the link to the press release from USEPA, which explains that the Middletown facility will be required to install a backup HRSG if certain emissions limits are not met:

One of the claims that the NRDC raised with the Middletown Coke permit in our ERAC appeal is that Ohio EPA should have required SunCoke to install a backup HRSG in its initial permit to install (in order to prevent the kind of pollution that US EPA is concerned about here).
