Environmental Protection Agency recently fined Triax Turbine Components for violations of the hazardous waste law and, in a separate action, Hill Brothers Chemical Company
for violations of pesticides law.
Sellers references summarized two reports on how chemical manufacturers and other businesses have been making security improvements to safeguard communities; the intent was to highlight best practices and to spotlight successes in mitigating vulnerabilities, and the sentence about Hill Brothers Chemical Company
having "freed 500,000 nearby residents from the risk of an ammonia gas release" was not meant pejoratively.
And by moving a facility out of downtown Los Angeles, Hill Brothers Chemical Company
freed 500,000 nearby residents from the risk of an ammonia gas release.
