TurboSonic Technologies, Inc today announced that it has been awarded a US$1.25m contract for the design and supply of equipment for abatement of SO2 and NOx for an undisclosed US cement plant.
This is the 18th contract for supply of TurboSonic’s technologies to this leading cement producer since 2004. Equipment is scheduled for delivery in its next fiscal year commencing July 1, 2011. Reduction of SO2, NOx and mercury emissions is mandated under the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the Portland Cement Manufacturing Industry, commonly referred to as the Portland Cement Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) regulation. 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.
