NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Executives of a sugar processing plant in southwest Idaho say they will invest in new equipment designed to reduce gas emissions blamed for creating haze in the region.

But officials with Amalgamated Sugar Co. in Nampa say the new equipment will not reduce the odor emitted from the facility where sugar beets are converted into raw sugar. The company has been working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for five years on a plan to reduce emissions.

The plan proposed by the company calls for improvements to coal burning boilers, reducing nitrogen-oxide levels and bringing emissions into compliance with state and federal clean air standards. The Idaho Statesman reports the plan also recommends shutting down three pulp drying machines. The proposal is open to public comment until July 29.
