Stellantis says it will add more emission controls at the new Jeep plant

The manufacturer of Jeep SUVs says they will install more emission controls at their new Detroit plant after an analysis by a third-party technician found a high frequency of odor concentrations coming from the Grand Cherokees plant.

The timing of how soon these mitigation efforts can take place will depend on discussions with the state of Michigan regarding permit requirements and deadlines introduced through the enforcement process, Stellantis NV said. But they should help ensure that its activities do not result in “offensive odors”, according to the report.

The report was filed by Stellantis on Friday, and the report comes after the transatlantic automaker suffered several violations by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy for odors coming from the Mack Assembly Plant in Detroit and for missing emission controls required by air quality permits in a part of the paint shops at Mack and Warren Truck Assembly Plant. The car manufacturer says that the odors do not pose a health risk to residents in the area.
