Canadian aerosol manufacturer fined for environmental offences

A Canadian aerosol manufacturer has been fined $170,000 (€116,290) after pleading guilty to two environmental offences. The federal government said its enforcement investigators started looking into K-G Spray-Pak in 2017, according to a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

The report claims investigators found the company had failed to abide by an environmental protection compliance issued by the Environment and Climate Change Canada the previous year. The firm, based in Vaughan, just north of Toronto, was charged for failing to implement and test environmental emergency plans within a prescribed limit.

K-G Spray-Pak was ordered to pay the fine on Tuesday 12 November after pleading guilty to one count of failing to comply with an environmental protection order and one count of violating the Environmental Emergency Regulations.

The company forms part of PLZ Aeroscience, a leader in speciality aerosol and liquid product manufacturing. PLZ Aeroscience recently acquired Massachusetts-based Precise Packaging.
