BP may upgrade to cut pollution

BP is considering spending millions for equipment to reduce pollution from its refinery in northwest Indiana three years after a $4.2 billion expansion and upgrade.

BP Whiting Refinery management has asked for corporate approval to build a new hydrotreater unit, which uses hydrogen to remove unwanted chemicals such as sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen and halides from gasoline, refinery manager Don Porter told the Times of Munster.

Although BP installed one in late 2013, the additional spending would be so Whiting meets a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mandate to ensure gasoline has less than 10 parts per million of sulfur.

"The industry is doing this across the board," Porter said. "We’re hoping to get approval in the next year. Then it would take three or four years to get that built."

2 bodies found near Atterbury

Police in central Indiana say two bodies were found in the back of a pickup truck near the Indiana National Guard’s Camp Atterbury.

Johnson County Sheriff Doug Cox said police aren’t looking for a suspect and there is no danger to the public. Cox said a man watching deer discovered the bodies of a man and woman at 7:12  a.m. Saturday. Cox said the bodies were in the back of a pickup truck off the road.

He said the man checked on the pair when "he saw blood and called emergency personnel."
