Tesla To Pay $31,000 In EPA Settlement For Hazardous Waste

Tesla has reached a settlement with the Environmental Protection Agency over federal hazardous waste violations at its automotive factory in a California city.

Auto News reports the government said Monday that Tesla will pay a $31,000 penalty and purchase $55,000 in emergency response equipment for Fremont, California.

The EPA said in a statement that Tesla will take steps to manage hazardous wastes at its factory.

After unannounced inspections in 2017 at its plant in Fremont, the EPA said Tesla had failed to comply with air emissions standards for equipment leaks and requirements for generators of hazardous wastes.
