KAMLOOPS, BC, April 10, 2018 (Local News) -Residents of Kamloops can expect to breathe in cleaner air this summer if Domtar officials bring in new machines to the Kamloops pulp mill to reduce and improve air pollution.

In an annual air report prepared for Kamloops city council by Domtar, the company will invest $3.5 million towards new machines. One is an electro-static precipitator that is used to remove smoke and dust particles from gases and the other is a scrubber used to clean and reduce air emissions. It will also eliminate the need for liquid sulfur dioxide - one of the most hazardous liquids used at Domtar mill.
