The Plastics Group, located in Willowbrook, Illinois, is a manufacturer of portable fuel containers and their spouts (gas cans). Staff from ARB’s Monitoring and Laboratory Division performed diurnal testing on gas cans manufactured by The Plastic Group and sold as Briggs & Stratton model 228T and found that they failed to meet performance standards required under title 13, California Code of Regulations, section 2467.
The Plastics Group provided ARB with all needed information during the agency’s investigation and fully cooperated in the resolution of this matter. The case was settled in April 2016 for $141,372.40, with $106,029.30 paid to the California Air Pollution Control Fund and $35,343.10 to the Foundation for California Community Colleges Small Engine Maintenance and Repair Courses SEP.
