MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — State and federal authorities say an Alabama chemical plant has been emitting sulfur dioxide and sulfuric acid mist into the atmosphere.
A federal court complaint accuses Nouryon Functional Chemicals of polluting the air from its sulfuric acid plant outside Mobile.
The EPA says the company modified its sulfuric acid unit without obtaining proper permits or installing required technology. Authorities are proposing a settlement with the company which they say would improve air quality.
