As early as November 2020, New-Indy Containerboard in Catawba, South Carolina, has been polluting neighboring properties with noxious and harmful hydrogen sulfide emissions.

The paper mill, which is owned by The Kraft Group and Schwarz Partners LP, recently pivoted its production from white paper to containerboard. Since then, emissions of hydrogen sulfide have skyrocketed.

Residents in North Carolina and South Carolina are rightfully concerned about not only the putrid smell – the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has received more than 17,000 complaints from residents – but the health effects of exposure to hydrogen sulfide. Exposure to even low concentrations of hydrogen sulfide can result in serious health effects, such as irritation to the eyes, ears, and throat, difficulty breathing, as well as headaches, poor memory, tiredness, nausea, balance problems and other serious health conditions. The effects are heightened for those with preexisting conditions such as asthma or severe allergies.

If you live or work in this area and are experiencing those types of symptoms, we encourage you to see a healthcare professional, and speak with us to learn if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
