The Department of Environment has posted a draft of the industrial approval being developed for Northern Pulp. The mill’s existing approval expires on Jan. 30.
The draft includes tighter limits with reductions focusing on three key areas–air emissions, water usage and wastewater effluent. The results, once implemented by the company, would put Northern Pulp in line with other mills in North America.
Written comments on the draft industrial approval will be accepted until Jan. 5.
