Problem with Pulp and Paper Mill Odour Solved

Postby Forest_Dump on April 1st, 2017, 8:30 am 

Pulp and paper mills have long been plagued by the presence of foul odours as a by-product of wood pulp processing. A solution for this problem may have finally been found. Professor Xavier Crement who holds the Febreze Chair in the Faculty or Forest Engineering from the University of Dryden in northwestern Ontario has announced that an additive can be manufactured and sprayed into the stacks at paper mills to alter the odour and instead make these sites smell like potpourri. The additive will blend bark and waste chips from balsam and cedar to create the delightful odour. One legal block, however, comes from local new age boutiques who fear a decline in sales for their air freshners and incense candles.

Wouldn't you know it? My brother worked in a paper mill all his life and often complained about this odor. He would have loved to know the problem has been solved. More power to the paper mills.

I had a feeling that April 1 would bring startling new technological advances. Hehe!
