Roseburg Forest Products, Coquille Plywood: Draft Title V Air Permit Related Documents
The comment period was extended by DEQ without explanation to April 20, 2007 for this proposed renewal of an Air Quality Permit. The facility, located near Coquille, Oregon, dries veneer, manufactures plywood and operates a boiler. The proposed permit would place no limit on carbon dioxide, a key global greenhouse gas. In addition, the permit would explicitly increase the facility's carbon monoxide limit by 49 tons per year. This is an increase of almost 2 times over the existing permit. Carbon monoxide is oxidized in the atmosphere forming carbon dioxide. The permit renewal would also allow an increase of 34 tons per year of sulfur dioxide, an acid rain forming gas. This is an increase of almost 8 times over the existing permit.
