ABERCROMBIE, NS, April 18, 2012 (CBC) -Nova Scotia's Northern Pulp mill has been ordered to install air pollution equipment - six years after a scrubber ceased to function.

CBC News has learned the Pictou County mill must make the changes as the result of a new operating permit issued by Nova Scotia last May.

The permit imposed dozens of conditions on the paper mill. Most of them have been met, but when Northern Pulp missed a January deadline to clean up its power boiler, the province issued a rare directive to fix the problem.
