Irving Pulp and Paper’s mill at Reversing Falls in Saint John has exceeded its sulphur dioxide emission limits for the past four years, CBC reported.
Information from New Brunswick’s Environment Department confirmed the plant has surpassed its 3,000 tonne emission limit by approximately 500 tonnes every year since 2002.
Irving, in response to the problem, is in the process of building a new scrubber and lime kiln at the facility, which are expected to be operational by December 2007.
“It’s underway, there’s a significant portion of it that has been completed, but it is going to take time to complete the remainder,” the CBC reported company spokeswoman Mary Keith as saying. “It is a significant investment between eight and roughly $10 million.”
