CARB Reaches Settlement With Catalytic Converter Firm

August 10, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA - The California Air Resources Board recently reached a $2 million settlement with Pennsylvania-based Eastern Manufacturing Inc., which was accused of illegally selling uncertified catalytic converters to California businesses and consumers. 

Aftermarket catalytic converters must be approved by CARB to be advertised, sold, offered for sale or installed in California. 

"Catalytic converters are the cornerstone of the clean car technology that helps keep California skies smog-free," said ARB Chairman Mary D. Nichols. "When the equipment doesn't meet standards or malfunctions, air quality and public health suffers." 

The settlement will be paid to the California Air Pollution Control Fund to support projects and research to improve the state's air quality. 

The California Air Resources Board is a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency.
