Chemours Faces Sanctions In Carolina In Latest Legal Fight Over Teflon

"North Carolina regulators will sanction The Chemours Co. for the release of an unregulated chemical into the Cape Fear River –  the latest in a barrage of legal assaults facing the Delaware company in the Tar Heel State.

Officials in September had told Chemours to keep the chemical GenX from flowing into the river from outfall pipes at its Teflon production plant in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Regulators learned on Nov. 1 that discharges of GenX had surged following an October spill of a precursor chemical, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality announced last week. "
