Air Toxics Health Risk Assessment Status

Cleaner Air Oregon is a health-based permitting program that regulates emissions of toxic air contaminants from facilities based on risk to nearby communities. CAO requires facilities to report toxic air contaminant emissions, assess potential health risks to people nearby and reduce toxic air contaminant risk if it exceeds legal limits.

As part of the Cleaner Air Oregon process, each facility has a dedicated web page to provide communities access to facility information and updates on where it is involved in the process.

  • Each step of the CAO risk assessment process has a section that includes LRAPA's communications and deliverables from the facility.
  • A color-coded graphic shows where a facility is in the Cleaner Air Oregon Process.
  • For additional information and history of the program, visit the DEQ Cleaner Air Oregon website.

About the Facility – International Paper (IP) - Springfield Mill
The International Paper Springfield Mill manufactures linerboard which is sold to produce corrugated boxes and packaging containers. Linerboard manufactured at the facility is produced primarily from wood chips and recycled old corrugated containers (OCC). The facility uses the Kraft pulping process to convert wood chips into unbleached virgin pulp. The facility also operates a 4-turbine electrical cogeneration power plant which supplies steam for pulp and linerboard production and produces electric power for sale. The facility is located at 801 42nd Street in east Springfield and has produced unbleached paper products since it began operating in 1949.  The facility was owned and operated by Weyerhaeuser until 2008, when it was sold to International Paper.
