Nice-Pak Products, Inc. Settlement
Nice-Pak Products, Inc. Settles For $160,500
In May 2021, the California Air Resources Board and Nice-Pak Products, Inc. of Orangeburg, New York, reached a settlement agreement in the amount $160,500. Nice-Pak Products, Inc. sold, supplied, and offered for sale a glass cleaner product that was manufactured for use in California. The Nice-Pak Products, Inc. glass cleaner product contained concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that exceeded the standards specified in title 17, California Code of Regulations section 94509(a). The violation resulted in approximately 10.7 tons of excess VOC emissions for the “Glass Cleaner” (nonaerosol) category.To come into compliance, Nice-Pak Products, Inc. ceased distribution into California of the glass cleaner product and changed the marketing language to clearly identify as only being used as an optical lens cleaner, which is exempted from the “Glass Cleaner” category.
