Bayer settles discharge violations at US plant

Bayer CropScience has reached a settlement with the US EPA over a range of environmental violations at its agrochemical plant in Institute, West Virginia. Bayer will pay a fine of $112,500 and spend more than $900,000 on environmental projects. The settlement is unrelated to the explosion and fire at the site last year (see this issue). It relates to inspections carried out in 2001, when the site was operated by the legacy company, Aventis CropScience. There were 35 incidents between 1999 and 2001 when chemical discharges violated permitted limits, the EPA notes.
