Phillips 66 pays $50K over hazardous waste allegations at Trainer refinery

Posted: January 23, 2013

Phillips 66 Co. has agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty to settle alleged violations of hazardous waste regulations at its former refinery in Trainer, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday.

EPA cited Phillips 66 for violations involving the storage of hazardous materials including refinery hydrocarbon waste, chromium waste, heavy metal waste from batteries and mercury waste from fluorescent bulbs.

Phillips 66 Co. is the successor to ConocoPhillips Corp., which owned the refinery until it was sold last year to Monroe Energy, a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines.    - Andrew Maykuth
