ST. ROSE, La. (AP) — Two Shell chemical companies have agreed to install $6 million in pollution reduction equipment at two petroleum refineries in Louisiana and Alabama and upgrade a terminal in Puerto Rico as part of a Clean Air Act settlement with the federal government.

Shell Chemical LP and Shell Chemical Yabucoa, units of Royal Dutch Shell PLC, also will pay a combined $3.3 million civil penalty to the federal government, Alabama and Louisiana.

About $193,000 will go to Louisiana organizations for environmental education, teacher workshops and emergency operations.

The new pollution control equipment will be installed at Shell Chemical refineries in St. Rose, La., and Saraland, Ala.

The settlement was announced Wednesday by the Justice Department and the Environmental Protection Agency.
