CHICAGO, Aug. 14 U.S. EnvironmentalProtection Agency Region 5 has reached an agreement with Stroh Die CastingInc. on alleged clean-air violations at the company's secondary aluminum plantat 11123 W. Burleigh St., Milwaukee, Wis.

The agreement, which includes a $20,000 penalty, resolves EPA allegationsthat Stroh failed to do performance testing on its furnaces that melted coatedaluminum returned by its customers, and failed to comply with notification,planning, reporting and operating requirements.

Secondary aluminum plants must test for emissions of dioxins and furans,both hazardous air pollutants. There is evidence that dioxins may cause liverdamage and probably cause cancer in humans, while furans may also causecancer.
