Exxon Mobil will settle air pollution cases with the federal government and the State of Louisiana.
The feds and the state of Louisiana claimed that Exxon Mobil violated the Clean Air Act by releasing excess amounts of harmful pollutants from eight of its chemical plants.
Five of those plants are in Texas. Three of them are in the Baton Rouge area. All of them make either plastic, or chemicals for plastic — according to EPA officials.
