INTERNATIONAL PAPER (IP) – SPRINGFIELD MILL

Facility

The International Paper Springfield Mill manufactures linerboard which is sold to produce corrugated boxes and packaging containers. Linerboard manufactured at the facility is produced primarily from wood chips and recycled old, corrugated containers (OCC). The facility uses the Kraft pulping process to convert wood chips into unbleached virgin pulp. The facility also operates a 4-turbine electrical cogeneration power plant which supplies steam for pulp and linerboard production and produces electric power for sale. The facility is located at 801 42nd Street in east Springfield and has produced unbleached paper products since it began operating in 1949.  The facility was owned and operated by Weyerhaeuser until 2008, when it was sold to International Paper. Learn more about LRAPA’s regulation of International Paper Company, Springfield Mill by viewing their current air permit documents below.

The Cleaner Air Oregon Process

Cleaner Air Oregon (CAO) is a health-based permitting program that regulates emissions of toxic air contaminants from facilities based on risk to nearby communities. CAO requires facilities to report toxic air contaminant emissions, assess potential health risks to people nearby and reduce toxic air contaminant risk if it exceeds legal limits.

As part of the Cleaner Air Oregon process, each facility has a dedicated web page to provide communities access to facility information and updates on where it is involved in the process.

  • Each step of the CAO risk assessment process has a section that includes LRAPA’s communications and deliverables from the facility.
  • A color-coded graphic shows where a facility is in the Cleaner Air Oregon Process.
  • For additional information and history of the program, visit the DEQ Cleaner Air Oregon website.
Air Quality - Lane Regional Air Pollution Agency

LRAPA monitors air quality throughout Lane County with eight regulatory-grade monitors and over 90 commercial-grade air sensors. Air Quality Index values are updated hourly.

Find the current air quality, look up the closest monitor to you, and learn more about the Air Quality Index (AQI) on the Current Air Quality Page.

LRAPA regulates the burning of wood and yard debris, known as “outdoor burning,” in Lane County. LRAPA also enforces home wood heating – such as fireplaces and wood stoves – opacity ordinances for the cities of Eugene, Springfield and Oakridge.

Seasonal and daily restrictions can exist for both forms of burning. Check to see if there are any active burning curtailments in effect on the burning restrictions webpage.

LRAPA is responsible for issuing air permits to commercial and industrial operations with emissions above a certain threshold. Check to see if your business needs a permit by following our 5-step guide on our Permitting Overview webpage.

Asbestos is the name of a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals that are heat-resistant, strong and extremely durable. Asbestos has historically been used in over 4,000 building products because of these properties.

Asbestos can cause lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma. There is no safe level of exposure to friable asbestos.

LRAPA regularly solicits public comment on proposed agency actions such as rule changes, proposed air permits, and the agency’s annual budget. LRAPA also hosts monthly Board of Director and Citizen Advisory Committee meetings.

Learn more about these public comment window and public meetings on our News, Notices & Public Calendar webpage.

The physical environment is a crucial component of any individual’s health and well-being.  Every community needs access to safe air, land and water.  LRAPA has curated together a collation of topics commonly asked about by the community to provide information, important details, and connect interested community members with resources.

Explore the many topics of information on our Community Center webpage.

LRAPA is the local air authority responsible for monitoring Lane County’s air and administering programs that protect and improve air quality. LRAPA was founded in 1968 as an intergovernmental agreement between the cities of Springfield and Eugene. Today’s intergovernmental agreement includes Lane County and the cities of Cottage Grove, Eugene, Oakridge, and Springfield.
