EPA Cites Anchor Glass for Clean-Air Violations

EPA Region 5 has cited the Anchor Glass Container Corp. for alleged clean-air violations at the company’s container glass manufacturing plant in Indiana.

The proposed penalty was $96,901.
The EPA alleged that Anchor Glass failed to use its baghouses to control emissions of particulate matter (dust, smoke, ash) at the plant as required by the company’s state operating permit. The agency also alleged that the company had failed to comply with a number of other requirements in its operating permit.

The alleged violations were discovered during a November 2004 inspection by the EPA and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management.

Anchor Glass was given 30 days from receipt of the complaint to file an answer and request a hearing. The company may request an informal conference with the EPA at any time to discuss resolving the allegations.

Inhaling high concentrations of particulates can affect children, the elderly and people with heart and lung diseases the most.
