Shell and Exxon have been hit with a £40,000 fine for under reporting emissions at an Ethylene plant in Mossmoran, Scotland. Residents continue to be frustrated at the companies’ ongoing failure to address health and environmental concerns at the site.

Heavily redacted reports recently released by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revealed a catalogue of safety concerns at the Fife Ethylene Plant at Mossmorran and its neighbouring Braefoot Bay terminal.
