HGNR Inc. Settlement
HGNR Inc. Case Settles for $7,500
Between January 2011 and December 2013, HGNR, Inc. sold, supplied, and offered for sale in California Dumonde TECH Citrus Solvent which was in violation of VOC limits contained in ARB’s Consumer Product Regulations. The products were sold in various sizes ranging from 4 ounces to one gallon containers throughout the State. The sale of the products resulted in 0.69 tons of excess VOC emissions. HGNR also failed to display the date of manufacturer of Dumonde TECH Citrus Solvent. HGNR Inc. has since stopped selling the products in California and is currently working on reformulating their product to meet the VOC limits for Multi-purpose Solvents. HGNR Inc. has also instituted a date coding system for all of their products. The case was settled on July 14, 2014 for $7,500.
