KAMLOOPS, BC, Feb. 15, 2012 (Local News) -As the calendar flipped to 2012, the next level of emission standards for Domtar came into effect - and, so far, the pulp mill has passed the test.

Quarterly test results provided by Domtar to the Ministry of Environment show the mill discharged 165 milligrams of particulate per cubic metre during a January test.

That amount is less than the 180 milligrams allowed under its permit and an improvement on the near-fail from a test in the summer and the 175.8-milligrams reading from the third quarter.
