Nashua Corp. agrees to fine, will replace equipment

MERRIMACK - A Merrimack company has agreed to pay a $20,200 penalty and to spend $80,800 to replace old, polluting wood stoves in southern New Hampshire with new, cleaner models to settle EPA claims that it violated the federal Clean Air Act.

Nashua Corp. agreed to help homeowners replace their wood stoves with EPA-certified wood stoves or other cleaner, more efficient equipment such as gas or propane heaters, the EPA announced Thursday.

The wood stove change-out program is being managed by American Lung Association of the Northeast. Nashua will provide a voucher - typically for $1,000 per household - as an incentive to replace pre-1988 wood stoves.

A new wood stove installation costs about $3,000.

Nashua Corp. manufactures specialty coated products for printing, labeling and ticketing applications. The EPA determined the company was subject to national emission standards after a 2010 inspection.

It said the company failed to comply with the notification and reporting provisions but has since complied and paid the penalty.
