The Wood Products program is credited with developing, compiling, and updating an extensive database of air emissions from sources at wood products facilities, reflecting extensive studies around wood products plants in the 1990s to develop data on Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. The first version of the database was released in May 2009 and the latest update was in March 2013.
NCASI maintains electronic databases of air emissions test results for both pulp and paper mill sources and for wood products plant sources. The database for pulp and paper sources was expanded this year to include criteria air pollutants (SO2, NOx, CO, particulate matter, and total VOCs). The wood products database also includes both 'air toxics’ and criteria air pollutants.
