Amico-Klemp Co. in Orem has agreed to a $90,200 penalty to settle repeated air-quality violations.

Jay Morris, of the Utah Division of Air Quality, told the Air Quality Board at its June meeting that the company, which manufactures industrial grating, was cited for violating its volatile organic compounds (VOC) limits in 2009 and paid a $7,000 fine.

"During the 2012 compliance inspection, the company reported they had exceeded the VOC limit significantly for over 39 straight rolling 12-month periods," a staff report about the violations said.

Sometimes the company was releasing more than double the emissions allowed, said Morris.

The company is scheduled to pay $45,100 over 18 months. If it does not violate the laws again over the next two years, the other $45,100 penalty will be waived.
