Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on October 30, 2008, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Biofriendly Corporation, Civil Action No. CV08-7124 SJO (CTx), was lodged with the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

In this action, the United States sought civil penalties and injunctive relief under the Clean Air Act Section 211(d), 42 U.S.C. 7545(d), for violations of the statute's registration requirements pertaining to fuel additives and fuels containing additives, which are manufactured and sold in the United States. The proposed Consent Decree would require Biofriendly Corporation to pay a civil penalty to the United States in the amount of $1,250,000.
