Ohio EPA, Local Company Settle Air Pollution Case.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced that Fremont, OH-based Woodbridge Corporation, a manufacturer of polyurethane foam seats for the automotive industry, will pay the agency $40,000 following an agreement to resolve violations of the company's air pollution control permit.

According to the EPA, Woodbridge will pay a $32,000 civic penalty to the agency, which will be divided equally between the Ohio Environmental Education Fund and air pollution control programs, while the remaining $8,000 will be paid to the agency's Clean Diesel School Bus Fund.

The EPA noted that Woodbridge has a permit limiting its annual emissions to 90.52 tons of volatile organic compounds, a limit the company has exceeded numerous times since 1999.
