Technical Bulletin No. 0768: Volatile Organic Compound Emissions from Wood Products Manufacturing Facilities, Part I – Plywood

An impinger/canister method developed by NCASI and EPA Method 25A were used to measure volatile organic HAP and VOC emissions from eleven mills producing veneer and/or plywood. Veneer dryers and plywood presses (if present) were tested at all mills. At some mills other emission sources were sampled including veneer coolers, radio frequency veneer redryers, chippers, saws, sanders and a log steaming vat.
