Nippon

On September 1, 2016, Nippon Paper Industries (doing business as Nippon Dynawave Packaging Company) purchased the Longview Weyerhaeuser NR Co. kraft pulp and paper mill, as well as the liquid packaging paper and extruder operations. The mill produces approximately 830 off-machine tons of bleached paperboard and 365 air-dried tons of wet lap pulp each day.

Air permit
Air Operating Permit No. 0000124 and its support document transferred to Nippon with the kraft pulp and paper mill.

Water permit
Nippon now operates the wastewater treatment plant. Treated process wastewater from the mill is discharged to the Columbia River and the Longview ditch system. Nippon also accepts and treats wastewater from Eagle US 2, Hasa Inc., Specialty Minerals, Solvay Chemicals Inc, the Columbia & Cowlitz Railway, North Pacific Paper Corporation (NORPAC), Weyerhaeuser Lumber, and the Mint Farm.

NORPAC

This facility produces newsprint and printing and specialty papers using thermomechanical pulp, deinked pulp from recycled newsprint, and bleached kraft pulp from Nippon's Longview mill.

Air Operating Permit
NORPACs operations were included in the Nippon permit. Due to the sale of the kraft pulp and paper mill, a new permit now addresses only NORPACs operations. In 2014, NORPAC produced 565,000 BDMT of TMP pulp, 57,000 BDMT of deinked pulp, and 756,000 air dry metric tons (ADMT) of paper products.

Weyerhaeuser Lumber
