A state pollution control agency requested assistance from EPA's Control Technology Center (CTC) in determining possible emission sources within the plant and assessing potential controls for those emissions. The report summarizes the results of a site visit and the review of the plant operations and test reports. Data gathering involved collection of test reports, permit applications and other information on waferboard manufacturing operations. States where waferboard is manufactured were contacted to establish controls used for various operations. A site inspection was made to examine operations first-hand and to verify controls in-place. In addition, one state office was visited to discuss the extent of complaints, stack tests conducted, and results of emission dispersion modeling. It appears that substitution of another wood species for aspen which is currently predominantly used would reduce emissions. Another potential option for reduction of emissions is a variation of the dryer operating conditions. Use of a water or caustic scrubber is another potential control mechanism.
