REPUBLIC RECOGNIZED IN EPA PROGRESS REPORT

 REPUBLIC RECOGNIZED IN EPA PROGRESS REPORT
 MASSILLON, Ohio, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Russell W. Maier,


president and CEO of Republic Engineered Steels, Inc. stated today that he was pleased the United States Environmental Protection Agency had specifically mentioned Republic as one of the "Top 600" companies which was making progress in meeting targets for reducing toxic chemical pollution.
 The U.S. EPA yesterday released the second progress report on its 33/50 program. That program seeks to reduce the generation of high priority industrial toxic waste by 50 percent by 1995, with an interim goal of a 33 percent reduction by 1992. In the report, the EPA said the company had provided it with information on its Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) activities including: installation of steam cleaning equipment to replace the use of trichloroethane, thus eliminating 40,000 pounds of releases; modifying capture hoods and increasing baghouse (filter) efficiencies to capture greater amounts of metallic dusts, which the company hopes to be able to reuse; creating a task force to explore means of eliminating landfilling of electric arc furnace slag. The report also singled out AT&T, BFGoodrich, DuPont, Dow and Illinois Tool Works, along with Republic, for specific mention.
 Maier said, "Republic is committed to this voluntary program of pollution control and reduction because of its commitment to be a responsible citizen in the communities in which it does business. We believe co-operative efforts of this nature with government are a better way of accomplishing socially desirable goals than confrontational disputes." He went on to note that, "More importantly Republic has identified its various waste streams and is giving this information to its workforce so that necessary steps can be taken to eliminate or minimize them."
 Republic Engineered Steels, Inc., an employee-owned company, is the leading domestic producer of high-quality bar and specialty steels designed to meet the world's most demanding applications.
 Headquartered in Massillon, Ohio, Republic has plants in Canton and Massillon, Ohio; Beaver Falls, Pa.; Gary, Ind.; Willimantic, Conn.; and Chicago.
