Terra Industries, Inc. to Pay Civil Penalty for Air Violations The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced Terra Industries, Inc., one of the nation's largest producers of nitric acid and nitrogen fertilizers, has agreed to pay a total of $625,000 in civil penalties to settle a series of alleged violations of the federal Clean Air Act at nine of its plants in Iowa, Mississippi and Oklahoma. As part of the settle- ment, Terra will also spend an estimated $17 million to install and implement new controls and technologies that are expected to reduce harmful nitrogen oxide emissions at its facilities by at least 1,200 tons per year. "Illegal air pollution from the production of ni- tric acid can leave the pub- lic vulnerable to long-term health problems such as respiratory illness and asthma," said Cynthia Giles, assistant adminis- trator for EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compli- ance Assurance. "Bringing Terra into compliance with the Clean Air Act will pro- tect the public health of communities across Iowa, Mississippi and Okla- homa." "This agreement will require Terra Industries to make important improve- ments in pollution control technology at nine acid- producing facilities that will result in cleaner and healthier air for the benefit of communities in Iowa, Mississippi and Okla- homa," said Ignacia S. Moreno, Assistant Attor- ney General for the Envi- ronment and Natural Re- sources Division of the Department of Justice. "This is a notable achieve- ment in our efforts, along- side the Environmental Protection Agency, to ad- dress the largest sources of harmful air pollution and bring about company- wide compliance with the Clean Air Act." Terra is a major U.S. producer of nitrogen fertil- izers, including anhy- drous ammonia, urea, am- monia nitrate and urea- ammonium nitrate (UAN). The company also produces nitric acid, a key intermediate in the manu- facture of ammonium ni- trate and UAN. Terra, headquartered in Sioux City, will pay $325,000 to the United States, and $100,000 each to the State of Iowa, the State of Mississippi and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, which are named as co- plaintiffs in the action filed in U.S. District Court in Sioux City.
