PITTSBURGH — After four years of legal wrangling, SunCoke Energy Inc. and the city of Monroe, Ohio, may be close to reaching a settlement over the company’s nearby Middletown coke operations.

Under the terms of the agreement proposed by Lisle, Ill.-based SunCoke, the company would provide additional air-quality protection at its facility and reimburse the city for more than $1 million in legal expenses.

The matter has been playing out in court since January 2009, when the city filed a lawsuit to ensure the company complied with the Clean Air Act in building the plant along city limits (AMM, April 22, 2009).
