Hudson Company To Pay EPA $116K For Plant Violations

A printing equipment company has agreed to pay $116,000 to the Environmental Protection Agency over air pollution violations at its plant in Hudson, N.H.

Last September, the EPA filed a complaint against Presstek alleging violations of hazardous waste management laws, including failure to comply with air emission regulations.

The EPA said as part of its operations manufacturing printing equipment, Presstek generates hazardous wastes that include solvent-containing wastes, which are ignitable, and corrosive wastes.

EPA said Presstek has revised its hazardous waste contingency plan and personnel training program to comply with regulations, and developed and is implementing a program to monitor and control air emissions from hazardous waste operations at the facility.

Presstek was based in Hudson until 2007, when its corporate offices moved to Connecticut.
