Some people are worried that the mill will “smell”. This is understandable as older pulp mills did indeed smell quite dreadful at times. The pulp mill that Gunns will build will use the most up to date, world class technology to prevent any “smells”. Our mill will be the first in the world to have a 3-tier odour protection system which “burns” the odours. All 3 systems would have to break down at the same time in order for odour to be released. Our studies show that the statistical likelihood of odour limits being exceeded at the pulp mill site is once every 11 years!
