A Kentucky news channel has unearthed a CRT dumping ground near a processing facility owned by processor Global Environmental Services. The company, which also recently lost or withdrew from its environmental certifications, has since admitted to the wrongdoing.
The world’s only remaining glass-to-glass recycling outlet for CRTs has idled its panel and funnel furnaces in Bharuch, India for “heavy maintenance” and stopped taking CRT glass from its U.S. partner, Cali Resources, E-Scrap News has learned.
The processor known for its controversial approach to handling CRT glass has been fined more than $100,000 for an alleged series of worker safety violations cited at its Plainfield, Ill. plant.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced that Eco International has agreed to remove the remnants of a 13,000-ton stockpile of crushed CRT glass the company amassed between 2010 and 2013.
After a long-simmering defamation lawsuit was dismissed, the Basel Action Network went on the offensive. A report released by BAN indicates Intercon Solutions, a Chicago-area processor that appears to be inactive, exported at least 167 containers of scrap material to Hong Kong and other Asian ports between 2010 and 2011.
