EPA sets up website to address Lake County ethylene oxide concerns
A Web page has been established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to address recent concerns regarding ethylene oxide emissions from two facilities in Lake County: Medline Industries in Waukegan and Vantage Specialty Chemicals in Gurnee.
Visit www.epa.gov/il/ for information and updates. The U.S. EPA has been working with Illinois EPA to examine emissions information from both the Medline and Vantage facilities to determine potential next steps.
Questions and concerns should be sent via email to the U.S. EPA at email@example.com.
