Bandit Nabbed For Emissions Violations

By pdamon18 January 2017

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a settlement with Bandit Industries, Inc. Remus, Mich., for an alleged 2552 violations of the Clean Air Act for selling non-road diesel engines and equipment used to process wood and waste that do not meet federal standards. Bandit will pay a $3 million civil penalty, EPA said. EPA said Bandit sold non-road diesel engines and equipment that were neither covered by the certificates of conformity required by the Clean Air Act, nor exempt from that certification requirement under the requirements of the Transition Program for Equipment Manufacturers (TPEM). Additionally, as alleged, Bandit built and sold equipment with engines using older emission standards in exceedance of normal inventory restrictions. A stipulation of judgment and a complaint were simultaneously filed in the Western District of Michigan. Since there is no injunctive relief in the stipulation, there is no public comment period, EPA said.
