Woodstove Emissions as Offsets
(from Jill Inahara, OR DEQ)
We have an area that exceeded the PM2.5 standard but has not yet been designated as a nonattainment area. The exceedances have occurred at night in the winter time so it’s most likely due to woodstove emissions. There is a company that wants to install a cogeneration facility but cannot get all the offsets it needs from industrial sources. Do you know of any instances where states have used woodstove upgrades/changeouts to offset industrial emissions?
