Background Information Document for Proposed Plywood and Composite Wood Products NESHAP.
This background information document (BID) was prepared to support development of national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for the plywood and composite wood products (PCWP) manufacturing industry. Plywood and composite wood products include particleboard, oriented strandboard (OSB), medium density fiberboard (MDF), fiberboard, softwood plywood, softwood veneers, hardwood plywood, hardwood veneer, laminated veneer lumber (LVL), laminated strand lumber (LSL), parallel strand timber (PSL), wood I-joists, glue-laminated beams, and other engineered wood products. These PCWP are generally manufactured by adhering wood pieces (e.g., particles, fibers, flakes, veneers, or lumber) with glue or other binder and pressing into a consolidated product.
