In British Columbia, emissions of Busan 1030 from the stacks of spray booth operations at wood protection facilities has become an important issue. With increasing controversy over the use of chlorinated phenols and their derivatives for anti-sapstain treatment, it is anticipated that Busan 1030 will find favor with a number of companies because of its reported lower toxicity, and because it does not seem to contain high hazard impurities such as chlorinated dioxins and dibenzofurans. The following report describes the derivation of a number of interim guidelines, which can be used to evaluate emissions from the stack of a spray booth operation using Busan 1030.
