The Syntex Verona (SV) site, formerly operated as Hoffman-Taff, Inc., was purchased in 1969 by Syntex Agribusiness. The site is located 30 miles southwest of Springfield in extreme southwestern Missouri. SV was used to manufacture hexachlorophene from 1970 to 1971, which produced the byproduct 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), referred to as dioxin. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the soil is dioxin. The selected remedial action for this site includes: excavation and offsite thermal treatment of dioxin-contaminated soil and offsite disposal of the ash residue.
