Fibrominn cited for burning treated wood in violation of air emissions permit

Email

ST. PAUL -- Fibrominn of Benson will pay a $14,000 civil penalty to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to resolve a violation of the company's air emissions permit.

Fueled primarily by turkey litter, Fibrominn's electric power generating plant also includes wood and other biomass in its fuel mix. However, its air emissions permit prohibits using treated wood, such as plywood and oriented strand board.
