Sunoco plant in Claymont to pay $750,000 in fines


The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has penalized the owners of the Sunoco plant in Claymont. The agency learned that the company modified an emergency flare without a permit to combust gas from other sources in a “non-emergency capacity.”

Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminals, LP will pay a $600,000 cash penalty and an additional $150,000 towards an environmental improvement project. In addition, DNREC has ordered the company to decommission the flare by March 31, 2019.

Sunoco plans to build a new flare in Pennsylvania.

The $150,000 fine will go towards the transition of Delaware’s ambient monitoring network for air pollution from filter-based PM2.5 (particulate) monitoring to continuous monitors located throughout the state.
