WASHINGTON (AP) ' The government has announced a settlement requiring BP North America Inc. to spend more than $400 million to reduce pollution at an Indiana refinery.
The agreement is designed to reduce harmful air pollution by more than 4,000 tons annually at the facility in Whiting, which is a half-hour drive southeast of Chicago.
The government alleged violations of Clean Air Act requirements regarding construction and expansion of the refinery.
BP will install equipment that will limit the amount of gas sent to flaring devices used to burn off waste gases.
