TDY Industries LLC has been issued penalties of $16,500 for hazardous waste violations at two Wah Chang facilities.

The violations were discovered during an inspection in December of 2013 at facilities of the Wah Chang Research Center, 2951 E. Front St., and the metals production facility at 1600 Old Salem Road.

TDY is appealing the penalties.

DEQ assessed a penalty of $3,300 at the Research site for failure to determine if waste laboratory chemicals and residues generated at the site were hazardous.

At the production facility, DEQ found that waste material generated from niobium processing was stored in an unmarked and open container without determining if the material was hazardous. TDY later found some of the material contained barium at a concentration that exceeded the limit for a toxic hazardous waste. The company was penalized $3,300 for not performing hazardous waste determination and $6,600 for not marking the container.

In addition, the company was fined $3,300 for storing hazardous waste in an outdoor underground sump tank. The tank did not meet requirements for ensuring its entegrity, the DEQ said.
