Pfizer to Pay $975,000 for Alleged Clean Air Violations at Connecticut Facility
Date:6/23/2008

l, hydrogen chloride, methylene chloride, MTBE, hexane, toluene, and many others, which are classified by EPA as hazardous air pollutants under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act.

"This significant penalty, the first in federal court under the PharmaMACT regulations, should send a strong message to the pharmaceutical industry that they must be diligent in detecting and repairing leaks of hazardous substances" said Ronald J. Tenpas, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Environment and Natural Resources Division. "We will not wait to enforce the law until after a catastrophe occurs. Penalties such as this one compel the industry's close attention and rigorous implementation of the leak detection requirements to prevent the escape of harmful air pollutants that can endanger the public."

"All facilities that produce hazardous air pollutants must carefully adhere to all provisions of EPA's Clean Air requirements to ensure that we are taking every necessary step to protect human health and our environment," said Robert W. Varney, regional administrator of EPA's New England office.

Under the agreement, Pfizer certifies that the violations have been corrected. However, the violations undermined EPA's ability to determine compliance, which presented the risk of excess emissions of hazardous air pollutants for leaks that were not timely detected and repaired. The Groton facility itself ceased pharmaceutical manufacturing in January 2008.

Pfizer, a publicly traded corporation, incorporated in Delaware, operates about 80 manufacturing plants worldwide where it makes healthcare products relating to human and animal health.
