The Environmental Protection Agency slapped electric car manufacturer Tesla with an $86,000 settlement for violating “hazardous-waste and air-emissions standards” at its Fremont, California-based production facility.

Those inspections also revealed that Tesla had not performed adequate due diligence on some of the solid waste produced by the plant.
