Ecology proposes to approve the draft renewal of an air operating permit (AOP) for Boise Cascade Kettle Falls Lumber.
Boise Cascade Wood Products Kettle Falls Lumber is located at 610 West Third Avenue in Kettle Falls. It is a sawmill that manufactures lumber from logs, operates lumber drying kilns and hogged fuel boiler, and handles wood residual. The main air pollution emitting processes at the facility are lumber drying kilns, a hogged fuel boiler, lumber planer, and wood residual collection system.
In 2017, Ecology issued a new air quality notice of construction (NOC) permit to reestablish boiler soot blowing as part of its daily operations. This process is generally accepted as a way to improve boiler efficiency throughout the year. As a result, this change has reduced the overall potential emissions for the facility.
