Enforcement action

The Agency has served an enforcement notice on BP Chemicals at Baglan Bay in Wales after a breach of the pollution control authorisation.

Operations include vinyl acetate production. BP had undertaken two changes without fully assessing the environmental impact and without notifying the Agency. One change led to a breach of the annual release limit for volatile organic compounds. The notice requires BP to investigate how emission limits at the vinyl acetate plant will be achieved and how an effective management system will be established to ensure the Agency is notified of future changes.
