EPA reaches agreement with FONA on clean-air and hazardous-waste violations

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has reached an agreement with FONA International Inc. on alleged clean-air and hazardous-waste violations at the company's food flavoring manufacturing plant at 525 Randy Road, Carol Stream, Ill.

The agreement, which includes a $70,000 penalty, resolves EPA allegations that FONA violated the Clean Air Act and state regulations by failing to get state construction and operating permits requiring air pollution controls for the plant.

The agreement also resolves EPA allegations that the company violated the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and state regulations by not complying with recordkeeping and reporting requirements for hazardous wastes generated at the facility.
