Massachusetts printing company cited for alleged clean air violations

Suddekor Inc., a printing firm located in Agawam, Massachusetts, was recently fined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for allegedly violating the Federal Clean Air Act. EPA officials noted that the company's facility could potentially emit sufficient pollutants to be subject to the act's National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Printing and Publishing Facilities. Additionally, these administrators said the business would require a Title V operating permit under the Clean Air Act.

The recent penalty imposed against Suddekor requires the company to submit a plan to the EPA about how it will reduce hazardous air pollutant emissions over time. Suddekor representatives said the company will use more environmentally friendly inks to help lower these emissions.

In 1970, federal officials passed the Clean Air Act to alter the government's role in controlling air pollution. The regulation led to the creation of four major regulatory programs and comprehensive federal and state regulations to limit emissions from industrial and mobile sources.
