Louisiana-Pacific Corporation

Year Submitted: 2003

Process: Pre peel softening

Industry: Wood Products

Equipment: Log Wetting

Location: Lufkin, Angelina County TX

No. of employees: 340

Logs are steam heated and wetted in chests to soften the wood prior to peeling. The wetting process previously discharged all chest water from each batch. This required a large volume of make-up water.

P2 Application:

Louisiana-Pacific constructed a recycling loop which continually reuses approximately 99 percent of the chest water.

Environmental Benefits:

Reduced the total water usage requirements of the facility as well as wastewater discharge by approximately 30,000 gallons per day or 10,950,000 gallons per year.

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

Annual wastewater discharge costs were substantially decreased.
