AltAir settles with CARB over LCFS reporting violations

January 11, 2021 |

In California, California Air Resources Board today announced a settlement with AltAir-Paramount, LLC addressing reporting violations under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). The settlement is valued at $132,500.

AltAir produces renewable diesel and renewable jet fuel from tallow at its facility in Paramount, CA. 

CARB staff determined that Altair made unauthorized changes to quarterly and annual reports, reclassifying certain fuel volumes and adding previously unreported gasoline sales. 

AltAir admits the violations, cooperated with CARB’s investigation and is now in full compliance with the LCFS regulation.

AltAir paid a penalty amounting to $132,500, calculated in keeping with CARB’s enforcement policy. Of that total, $66,500 goes into California’s Air Pollution Control Fund. The additional $66,000 will fund a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) developed by Tree Fresno to evaluate the effectiveness of using vegetative barriers to reduce near-road pollution exposure.
