Nashua Corp. agrees to fine, will replace equipment
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.
