Baton Rouge Plant Toxic Chemical Releases

Honeywell International paid the federal government $550,000 to settle civil Clean Air Act violations at its Baton Rouge plant in July and August 2003, when three separate toxic chemical releases resulted in the death of an employee and injuries to several others. In February 2007, Honeywell pled guilty to two criminal counts in connection with the fatal chemical release incident and was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay $12 million in fines and restitution (see Honeywell International instance, “Negligently Causing the Release of Hazardous Air Pollutants.”)
