Becton Dickinson sterilization facility in Ga. gets complaint for emissions

Becton Dickinson and Co. said a move to temporarily stop the company's sterilization operations in Covington, Georgia was filed due to air quality concerns.

The director of the environmental protection division of Georgia's Department of Natural Resources filed a complaint and motion for temporary restraining order in Newton County Superior Court in Covington against Becton Dickinson.

The company's Covington facility sterilizes medical devices used for surgery, vascular access, urological care and peripheral interventions.

The complaint alleges that the Covington facility is not complying with its air quality permit with respect to ethylene oxide emissions, and that the company is not taking steps to reduce its overall emissions.

Becton Dickinson said plans to defend the allegations in the complaint, and added that it is using the "best available technology" to minimize emissions at the facility.

Further, the company said it is implementing contingency actions to mitigate the impact in the event that the facility but cannot assure the plan will be implemented in case of an injunction.

Becton Dickinson and Co. develops and sells medical supplies, devices, laboratory equipment and diagnostic products worldwide.
