URC to pay fines and implement upgrades following complaints of foul odors

In the Philippines, Universal Robina Corp has agreed to pay the fines associated with operating its ethanol plant in Barangay Tamisu, Bais City, Negros Oriental without an air pollution source equipment. In addition the company has agreed to concrete its containment pond within 90 days of signing the agreement that was dated July 24. It will also seek to acquire the ponds located on private land owned near to the site. The case began as a result of public complaints made about foul odors coming from the facility early this year, and the settlement is a result of the investigation.
