The article reports on the alleged clean-air violations of Equistar Chemicals at its ethylene production unit in Illinois. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) alleges that Equistar discharged visible emission of black smoke from the main flare at its plant. The emissions were observed by EPA inspectors. At the same time, JLM Chemicals, which produces phenol, has been cited for clean-air violations at its site, which is also in Illinois.
