Northern Pulp has delivered a new proposal to the government of Nova Scotia that parent company Paper Excellence Canada says “dramatically improves” its previous effluent treatment plan.
The CBC reports that the proposal was submitted to the environment department on May 14, and that the province must review to determine what type of environmental assessment will be required.
Graham Kissack, vice-president, EHS and corporate communications for Paper Excellence, says more details on the proposal are forthcoming.
The company recently withdrew its last environmental assessment application to further integrate stakeholder input. At that time, Kissack said the modernization plans would include a public dashboard to display live environmental data, third-party administration of environmental compliance testing, new advanced effluent treatment systems, and the implementation of oxygen delignification, among other elements.
The kraft pulp mill closed in January 2020.
