New-Indy Issues Statement Addressing Odor Concerns

printing better together

In a motion for a consent order filed July 12 in the United States District Court in Rock Hill, New-Indy Catawba LLC agreed to continue measures specified by the U.S. Envi- ronmental Protection Agency (EPA) to address concerns about odor in the vicinity of its mill. The filing is a procedur- al step to extend the EPA’s May 13, 2021 order regarding hydrogen sulfide emissions until October 31, 2021. The filing demonstrates New-Indy Catawba’s intention to accomplish its objective of cooperatively resolving any environmental concerns relating to its operations and its continuing commitment to work together with South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Con- trol (DHEC), EPA and the community to address the issue expeditiously. Reflecting this commitment, since March, New-Indy has: • Improved the mill’s waste-water treatment systems, in- cluding activating aerators, restarting the steam strip- per, and installing a carbon filter – all aimed at reducing hydrogen sulfide emissions; • Installed monitors both on our property and in sur- rounding neighborhoods that continuously test air quality levels and collect meteorological information; • Created a web site where daily air quality reports de- rived from its data collection efforts, notices about op- erational changes and other information are posted for public view; and • Convened a Community Engagement Group made up of residents from areas around the mill, mill staff and technical experts to establish an open dialog about mill operations. “With these steps, New-Indy is able to operate within the expectations of DHEC, EPA and the community, and have enabled the community to observe our data each day,” the company said in its statement. “Data shows that air emissions of hydrogen sulfide have been well below specified levels. Planned additional measures will improve consistency in operations and response to variations in weather and other factors. “We will continue to cooperate with local, state, and federal authorities to address public concerns swiftly. Our organization is committed to the safety of its neighbors, its 420 employees and the hundreds of others in the sur- rounding area who provide goods and services to the mill; protecting the environment; promoting economic vitality; and providing charitable contributions to support local causes. New-Indy Catawba mill executives and employees live and work here, and we remain eager and determined to do right by our community.” A joint venture between The Kraft Group and Schwarz Partners LP was formed to establish New-Indy. The com- pany name is derived from being the Newest Independent manufacturer and supplier of recycled containerboard in the corrugated box industry.
