EPA cites Wabash alloys.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 5, has cited Wabash Alloys LLC for alleged clean-air violations at the company's aluminum recovery plant in Cleveland.

EPA alleges that Wabash Alloys failed to comply with federal requirements for operating its scrap dryer afterburner, its scrap dryer filter system and its furnace filter system.

"EPA's mission is to protect public health and the environment," says Acting Regional Administrator Bharat Mathur. "We will take whatever steps are needed to ensure compliance with the Clean Air Act."

The EPA has reported the citations as preliminary findings of violations. To resolve them, EPA may issue a compliance order, assess an administrative penalty or bring suit against the company. The company has 30 days from receipt of the notice to meet with the EPA to discuss resolving the allegations.
