Tiller Corporation penalized for air-quality violations
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has penalized the Tiller Corporation, which operates a processing and shipment center for silica sand in North Branch, for multiple violations of the facility’s air quality permit.
The company built the facility in 2012-13 and began operating following issuance of an air quality permit from the MPCA in January 2013. Silica sand is brought to the facility from mines Tiller operates in Wisconsin, and processed for use in hydraulic fracturing and other industries. Product is shipped by rail and truck from the facility.
The permit requires performance tests of control equipment to ensure the facility’s emissions meet applicable air quality standards. The company is required to submit the results of these tests to the MPCA.
