Air Quality Management
The multi-sector air pollutant regulations in Canada administer restrictions on NOx emissions rates. The Pulp & Paper division is in full compliance with this regulation.
The chemical pulping sites in the Pulp & Paper Division are most vulnerable to odour, primarily caused by sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from chemical pulping.
Over the years, capital investments at Irving Pulp & Paper (IPP) have virtually eliminated the potential for odour to be detected off-site during normal operation. We are proud of this achievement at IPP and are committed to minimizing odour at all sites.
Odour complaints must be logged and shared with regulators, whether they have been substantiated or not. We investigate all odour complaints or inquiries to identify whether we may have opportunities to improve.
