Caption: Chipboard factory. Smoke rising from a chimney at a chipboard factory. A plantation of new trees for use in the factory is in the foreground. Chipboard (also known as hardboard) is a cheap building material made by pressing together wood chips and binding them with a synthetic resin at high temperatures. The manufacture of chipboard results in the emission of formaldehyde (methanal) into the atmosphere. Photographed in Hexham, Northumberland, UK.
