Air permits rejected for some area refineries
The Environmental Protection Agency today rejected the flexible air permits of 122 Texas facilities, including ones in Pasadena, Deer Park and Baytown, leaving them without legal operating permits.
The local facilities are the Exxon Mobil Baytown facility, the Shell Oil Deer Park refinery and the Chevron Phillips Pasadena plastics complex.
Regional Administrator Al Armendariz said none of the facilities will be required to shut down while obtaining a new operating permit.
