(CHICAGO, Dec. 8, 2009) U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has settled with G & S Titanium Inc., Wooster, Ohio, for alleged violations of the authorized Ohio Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requirement for treatment, storage and disposal facilities. A $33,600 penalty has been set.
The company failed to have a storage permit, conduct daily inspections of and keep records on its hazardous waste tank, provide annual employee training and keep records about it and maintain written job descriptions. G & S, a titanium manufacturer, generates hazardous waste acid and chromium sludge that requires proper management by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
Under the RCRA, EPA controls hazardous waste from its production to final disposal.
