Renewable Environmental Solutions is a rendering plant located in Carthage, Missouri, that uses the Thermal Conversion Process to convert agricultural waste products into fuel. Since the plant began operation in 2003, it has been the target of hundreds of complaints by Carthage residents for emitting offensive and noxious odors. At times the odor discharge is so severe that area residents are nauseated.
The Missouri Air Conservation Commission and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources have cited RES for multiple violations of the State’s air emission standards. Despite the numerous complaints and air emission standards violations, RES has failed to take adequate protective measures to prevent the emission and release of offensive and noxious odors from its facility. The resulting odor has injured area residents and property owners by diminishing their right to enjoy their property and decreasing their property values. This case is brought on behalf of a class of individuals who have suffered damages as a result of the odor discharge originating from the RES facility. Following the class-related briefing, the Court will schedule a hearing in 2009 on the Plaintiff’s Motion for Class Certification.
