Voluntary Air Pollution Limit

Boise, Wallula pulp and paper mill

April 19, 2018 - May 19, 2018

We invite you to comment on proposed Air Quality Order 15757, which adds a new Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) air pollution ("emission") limit to a piece of equipment at the Boise Wallula mill called No. 3 Paper Machine. The mill requested that we apply this limit.

In May of this year, the mill:
  •  Plans to shut down its bleach plant and stop making bleached paper products.
  • Will only make unbleached products with No. 3 Paper Machine.
  • Will limit the VOC emissions to 1.6 tons/month from this machine. It currently has no limits.
Read the proposed order and comment period notice for more information. This Order does not allow physical changes ("modifications") to any of the air pollution sources at the mill.
