The New Brunswick government is issuing a new air quality approval for the Arauco Canada mill in St. Stephen.

The company's current approval expires June 30th and the province says the new five-year approval will take effect July 1st.

The approval follows a public consultation and review conducted between December and April.

Arauco Canada's mill produces medium-density fibreboard from hardwood chips, softwood shavings and other sources of residual wood fibre.
