On May 14, 2015, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois in the lawsuit entitled United States v. Enviro-Safe Refrigerants, Inc., Civil Action No. 1:15-cv-1196.
The United States of America, on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), filed a claim against Defendant Enviro-Safe Refrigerants, Inc. (“Enviro-Safe”) to obtain injunctive relief and civil penalties pursuant to Clean Air Act Sections 113 and 612, and the Significant New Alternatives Policy program regulations promulgated at 40 CFR part 82, subpart G §§ 82.170-82.184 (commonly known as the “SNAP” program). The United States alleged that Enviro-Safe had marketed and sold flammable hydrocarbon refrigerants as direct replacements for ozone-depleting substances without providing the Start Printed Page 30094requisite information to EPA regarding such products. In resolving the United States' claims against Enviro-Safe, the proposed Decree requires a payment of $300,000 in civil penalty and imposes various restrictions on Enviro-Safe's future marketing activities to compel compliance with both the specific language and underlying intent of the SNAP regulations.
