ALK-Abello requests modification to air quality permit to produce more dust mites in Post Falls facility

ALK-Abello Source Materials recently requested modifications to its air quality permit to construct (PTC) for its Post Falls facility, according to the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

ALK-Abello uses the Post Falls facility to create allergenic source material, and is seeking a modification to its PTC to increase its production of dust mites, which are used to test for and treat allergies. If approved, the company’s increased production would still have to stay within the legally allowable limits.

The DEQ has posted the permit application on its website, and it will conduct a 30-day public comment period if one is requested, by mail or email, by Jan. 27.
