TurboSonic Technoloiges, a global provider of clean air technologies, today announced that it has been awarded a US$1.25m contract for the installation of equipment already on order from TurboSonic. The equipment will abate sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from a US cement plant. Completion is scheduled for May 2012.
The agreement includes installation, startup and commissioning services for TurboSonic’s Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) system for NOx control and TurboSorb Spray Dry Absorption (SDA) technology for SO2 control.
Reduction of SO2 and NOx emissions is mandated under the US Environmental Protection Agency’s National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants for the Portland Cement Manufacturing Industry, and applies to all new and existing Portland cement plants. This rule was enacted in November 2010 and coincides with a worldwide concern regarding the harmful health effects and negative environmental impact of these hazardous air pollutants.
This contract is an addition to work currently in progress for this repeat customer.
