The report summarizes information gathered on emissions from the composite wood industry (also called the Plywood and particleboard industry) and potential pollution prevention options. Some of these potential pollution prevention options presented in the report include: conveyor belt drying, low temperature drying, light moisture bonding adhesives, foam extrusion, and variable glue application rate. Other pollution prevention options presented in the report include alternative fiber sources (e.g., agricultural fiber and recycled wood waste) and naturally derived adhesives.
