EPA notifies BP of major clean-air violations
CHICAGO (Nov. 29, 2007) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 today notified BP Products North America Inc. of alleged violations of multiple Clean Air Act requirements at its Whiting, Ind., refinery.
EPA alleged that the BP Whiting refinery, located at 2815 Indianapolis Blvd:
failed to obtain a permit when it made major modifications to its fluidized
catalytic cracking unit. The unpermitted modification caused significant
increases of nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter
(PM10), and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
BP has 10 days to request a conference to discuss the violations.
