Cantimber Biotech to start stack testing process Nov. 3

Cantimber on Alberni waterfront will start stack testing with warmup procedure Nov. 3 and tests Nov. 7–10.

Cantimber Biotech will begin scheduled testing of its stacks Nov. 7–10, with a warmup procedure beginning on Nov. 3, the Port Alberni Port Authority announced on Tuesday.

Golder Associates, which has been conducting an independent review of the Cantimber operation, facilities and equipment, will oversee the stack testing. In addition to testing emissions from the stack, Golder will conduct ambient air monitoring measurements in the days preceding and during the stack tests at a variety of locations that might be affected, according to PAPA.

Cantimber installed a secondary combustion chamber thermal oxidizer to handle volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which were a main concern from the public during a recent open house, according to PAPA.

Members of the public can fill out an online feedback form to describe any impacts or effects experienced during the testing period. The link will go live right before testing at alberniport.ca and cantimber.com. The public can also call PAPA at 250-723-5312 during testing to report experiences.
