L-P plant wants higher emissions
Louisiana-Pacific’s plant in Center has applied for higher emissions of formaldehyde from its production equipment. The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) will host a public forum to answer questions and receive comments about L-P’s permit request Thursday, May 15, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Nicholson Community Center, located at 175 Lakeview Drive, Nicholson.
L-P’s facility is located at 10910 Commerce Road, Athens.
In its air quality application, L-P requested that the EPD amend its permit to increase formaldehyde emission limits from its dryers and the press. Formaldehyde is considered a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) by the Environmental Protection Agency.
The company also proposes a decrease in the HAP limit for some coatings used at the plant. And that the EPD authorize the use of the dryer abort stacks by the thermal oil heater during bypass operations.
The purpose of the meeting is to present information and to answer questions about the application, the draft permit, and the air quality permitting review process.
During the meeting, EPD representatives will make a brief presentation before holding a question-and-answer (Q&A) session. EPD will follow that with a public hearing to receive formal comments regarding the proposed permit amendment.
“We are committed to giving Jackson, Clarke and Madison county residents an opportunity to give us feedback,” said James “Jac” Capp, manager of the stationary source permitting program of EPD’s air protection branch. “We will consider all air quality related comments prior to making a decision whether to recommend issuance.”
Following a review of the application, EPD issued draft Title V Permit Amendment No. 2493-157-0015-V-02-2, which proposes to incorporate these changes into the facility’s existing Title V permit. EPD received the facility’s original application on August 27, 2007. EPD is conducting the Title V permit process in accordance with Title V of the Clean Air Act.
For information on the permit modification application or review process, contact James “Jac” Capp at 404-363-7020, or John Yntema at 404-363-7117.
For information about the Q&A or public hearing, contact Thomas Smith at 404-362-2790.
