JNE Consulting worked closely with the contractors to permit the existing plant to remain operational during construction. In addition, JNE was retained by Maple Leaf to act as its technical representative and assist it in gathering and compiling necessary information and documentation required by the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Energy for the Certificate of Approval of 18 exhaust stacks from three smoke houses.
