January 29, 2014, Lavington, B.C. – Residents in the small
British Columbia community of Lavington are expressing their concerns about a
proposed pellet plant. 

The plant, a joint effort involving Tolko Industries and Pinnacle
Renewable Energies, is to be built next to Tolko’s existing planer mill in the community
near Vernon.

At a January 28th public meeting, several
residents expressed their concerns about the emissions that will result from
the pelletizing process at the facility. The plant is nearby a local elementary
school, and residents are worried about what effect air pollutants could have
on the children. 

However, measures had already been put in place in the
planning stages of the project in order to minimize any concerns regarding emissions.
The $39 million plant is set to use a low temperature drying facility, which
would significantly reduce the air pollutants emitted from the plant.
