Meeting to discuss Peace Valley OSB’s request for MDI approval

Advertisement

An integrated part of the OSB process is the inclusion of formaldehyde, which acts as an adhesive, helping to blend the wood and compact it into an industrial standard plank.

Environmental Manager of Peace Valley OSB, Lindsay Sahaydak had previously stated the company wants to replace formaldehyde with MDI, commonly known as polyurethane; an element she says will have an overall lower impact on both the manufacturing process and particulate matter.

The MOE has already allowed a test of MDI inside the facility, which Sahaydak says has illustrated a positive outcome when associated with hygiene testing, air quality control, and stack testing.

Sahaydak says 90 per cent of the OSB industry currently uses MDI either partially or entirely.

Company representatives will be at this meeting to answer questions and provide feedback.

A final decision regarding this application will be made on November 3rd.
