Eastman Named In Pollution Study

Longview's Eastman chemical company has responded to accusations they failed to accurately report chemical emissions. The company was featured in a report from the Texas commission on environmental quality.... They say Eastman was one of the state's worst offenders under-reporting emissions of 10 chemicals on the EPA's toxic release list.

But Eastman sources disagree... Saying the study's assumption has not been verified... And that they are satisfied that they are consistently reducing emissions each year. Other figures from the report have Texas moving up from third place, to become the number one state in terms of pollution.
