Emissions

Drying veneers can gereate emission that contain hdrycoarbons, which can produce a blue haze in the atmosphere. Local officials and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set standards for such emissions. Douglas-fir and pondersoa pine can be the worst offenders during the drying process. Low resin content softwoods cause less of a problem. Careful control of the temperature of the dryers can significantly reduce these emissions.
