Durand Glass Manufacturing Co. made no admission of violations under the agreement announced Monday. The settlement, though, won’t take effect until a federal judge approves it.

Durand will pay $150,000 civil penalties to both the state and federal governments.

The firm, which makes tableware glass at its Millville plant, also has installed pollution control equipment there that’s expected to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide emissions by 174 tons per year and particulate matter by roughly 24 tons per year.
