I am a little surprised by the CFJC-TV "spin" put on Domtar's desire for an extension on their particulate permit. I'm happy to hear about the public open house, but the amount of faith suggested by the headline is a bit much, in my view.
From the CFJC-TV web site:
|Domtar Plans to Cut Emissions by 70%June 10th, 2009
|DOMTAR SAYS IT'S GETTING SET TO EMBARK ON A PUBLIC CONSULTATION FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS TO THE LOCAL PULP MILL. THE IMPROVEMENTS WOULD REDUCE PARTICULATE EMISSIONS BY UP TO 70%, BUT WOULD TAKE AN EXTRA THREE YEARS TO UNDERTAKE - FINALLY BEING COMPLETED IN 2016. COMPANY SPOKESPERSON BONNY SKENE SAYS THAT'S PARTIALLY DUE TO THE ECONOMIC CLIMATE. SKENE SAYS EMISSIONS WOULD BE REDUCED PHASE BY PHASE UNTIL 2016. A PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE IS PLANNED FOR JULY.
