Illegal Storage of Hazardous Waste in Illinois (Civil Lawsuit)
Honeywell International reached a settlement with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office to resolve a lawsuit over the storage of radioactive and hazardous waste at its facility on Route 45 North near Metropolis. Honeywell, which produces uranium hexafluoride and uses potassium hydroxide in air pollution control devices during the manufacturing process, allegedly stored radioactive residue and hazardous waste from the potassium hydroxide at the facility. Honeywell agreed to pay a $690,000 civil penalty and reprocess the hazardous waste under the terms of an interim agreement reached with the state in 2010.
