Acklands-Grainger Fined $500K for Environmental Violation

Acklands-Grainger, Toronto, Ontario, pleaded guilty, in the Provincial Court of Alberta, for contravening the Ozone-Depleting Substances Regulations, 1998, made pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, according to Environment and Climate Change Canada.

The company was fined $500,000, an amount that will be directed to the Environmental Damages Fund.

ECCC enforcement officers conducted an investigation into Acklands-Grainger's sale of aerosol products containing hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), a prohibited ozone-depleting substance. The investigation determined that between, 2012 and 2014, the company sold HV Switchgear Lubricant and Sprayon EL2204, which contained the prohibited HCFC-225.
