Fiber Recovery Inc., which owns and operates a paper mill screening processing facility in Ringle, was accused of violating its air permit that authorized construction and initial operation of three landfill gas-fired generators, and modification and initial operation of a wood/paper pelletizing dryer, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said Tuesday.
According to the complaint, violations include failing to perform timely testing of the stack that vents the emissions from the generators and dryer, exceeding the nitrogen oxide limit during one testing, and failing to update its malfunction prevention and abatement plan to include the new generators and modified dryer.
Van Hollen said Fiber Recovery has since shown compliance with all permit limits, and corrected all sampling and recordkeeping deficiencies.
Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg prosecuted the case. Marathon County Circuit Court Judge Patrick Brady approved the settlement.
