On the morning of March 11, 2022, Allnex discharged 400 gallons of styrene into the sewage system following a chemical spill. An odor complaint was reported by multiple neighboring residences, stating a strong smell similar to that of paint thinner inside the homes.
In response, a community meeting was formed at Americana Community Center to discuss the response to the spill performed by Louisville MSD, Air Pollution Control District, and the local fire department. Later, MSD performed an inspection of the facility and provided to the facility a list of issues that needed addressing.
