NEW YORK, July 20 (Reuters) - Chemical company E.I. Du Pont de Nemours & Co has settled with the government and agreed to pay a $4.125 million civil penalty for harmful emissions at four of its plants, the Department of Justice said on Friday.

Du Pont will also spend at least $66 million on air pollution controls at the sulfuric acid production plants in Louisiana, Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, the DoJ said.

It said the settlement, which also involved the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is expected to reduce more than 13,000 tons of harmful emissions annually from the plants.

The states of Louisiana, Virginia and Ohio joined the federal government in the agreement and will receive shares of the civil penalty.
