Refinery to pay $180K in air quality settlement
March 29, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — A refinery in Northern California has agreed to pay more than $180,000 to settle air quality violations.

Bay Area Air Quality Management District spokesman Tom Flannigan said in a statement Friday that Valero Refining Company in Benicia had agreed to pay the civil penalty for seven notices that the air quality agency issued in 2011 for incidents that occurred in December 2010.

All of the violations stemmed from a valve failure that caused an upset of Valero’s fluid catalytic cracking unit, which converts heavy gas oils into gasoline and other compounds.

The total settlement is $183,000, and the funds will be used to finance the air district’s inspection and enforcement activities.
