Jan. 1 marks the implementation date for Phase 2 of the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) formaldehyde rule. For composite panel manufacturers, fabricators and distributors, this means your particleboard products must now meet the lower emission standards of 0.09 ppm, while products made of MDF must not exceed emissions levels of 0.11 ppm — about half of what was previously allowable for both types of composite panels.
Flakeboard has published its first-ever Sustainability Report, detailing the company’s efforts in producing environmentally friendly products. Flakeboard is the largest composite panel manufacturer in North America, with eight manufacturing locations producing particleboard, MDF and HDF.
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is inviting small businesses to participate in an advocacy review panel focusing on formaldehyde.
NEW YORK -- "New Rules on CARB" will be the topic of a free one-hour webinar to be hosted by SGS Consumer Testing Services at 2 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, August 17.
