    IN 5 YEARS HP’s CORVALIS PLANT PUMPS 254 TONS OF AIR POLLUTION
    The
    state Department of Environmental Quality is inviting the public to
    comment on an application to renew the air emissions permit for
    Hewlett-Packard’s Corvallis facility.

    The
    plant produces air pollutants from the manufacture of silicon wafers
    and other aspects of the production process for inkjet printer
    components.

    Comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. Nov. 10. They
    should be addressed to Patty Hamman and can be e-mailed to
    hamman.patricia@deq.state.or.us, faxed to 503-378-4196 or mailed to 750
    Front St. N.E., Suite 120, Salem, OR 97301-1039.

    HP is asking
    for a five-year renewal of its current permit with no change in
    conditions. Under the current permit, the Corvallis facility can
    annually emit up to 24 tons of particulate matter, 14 tons of fine
    particulates, 39 tons of nitrogen oxides, 39 tons of sulfur dioxide, 99
    tons of carbon monoxide and 39 tons of volatile organic compounds.
