CC-06-021: Information on Kraft Pulp Mill Particulate Emissions for Visibility Modeling

Numerous kraft pulp mills have "BART-eligible" power boilers, recovery furnaces, smelt dissolving tanks, and lime kilns. Generally speaking, "BART-eligible" sources were built between 1962 and 1977, and emit SO2, NOx, and particulate matter. As required by EPA’s regional haze program, states are now in the process of evaluating whether or not emission reductions should be imposed on these "BART-eligible" sources.
