The LNG Canada Project recently submitted an application to the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) to discharge air emissions from an air curtain incinerator for the disposal of clean wood waste generated at the project site.

An air curtain incinerator is a pollution control device primarily designed to reduce particulate matter or smoke that results from combusting clean wood waste.

The clean wood waste generated at the project site includes solid wood, lumber, pallets, crates, crane matting as well as survey sticks that are unpainted, unstained, and untreated.

Any wood that has been coated with paint, varnish, oil, or other finishing material, or treated with wood preservatives or other chemicals, will be segregated, and not combusted in the air curtain incinerator.

The operating period for this air curtain incinerator will be approximately five hours per week for a period of up to 15 months.

All permits, safety and environmental plans will be in place prior to operation.

If you have an inquiry, please send it to or call the JFJV community feedback line at 250-632-JFJV (5358).
