Plywood Mills Hope For Extension On Emission Controls

Roseburg Forest Products and many other plywood mills across Oregon and the nation hope to receive an extension for installing controls on emissions of formaldehyde and other chemicals they release into the air each year, NewsReview reports. The equipment to reduce emissions costs millions of dollars.

At least 12 of the more than 20 plywood and composite wood mills in Oregon have asked state regulators to extend today’s deadline. Four more have argued that they don’t emit enough for the regulation to apply to them.

Ellen Porter, manager of environmental affairs for RFP, said compliance will cost the company more than any other environmental regulation in the past. “We’re going to be looking at tens of millions of dollars,” Porter said.
