Technology designed to control fine particulate, condensable particulate matter and acid mist emissions
WATERLOO: Clean energy technology supplier TurboSonic Technologies has received a US$2.7-million order to supply a SonicKleen Wet Electrostatic Precipitator (WESP) to control particulate emissions from a wood pellet production plant. The project is scheduled to wrap up this year. The SonicKleen WESP is used to control fine particulate, condensable particulate matter and acid mist emissions from industrial processes and power generation, providing continuous, reliable performance and low-maintenance operation.
“Our extensive experience in the wood-based panel market, where we have set the standard for equipment reliability and low maintenance, was instrumental in winning this contract,” said Edward Spink, TurboSonic’s CEO. “We believe that this order represents a growing market for us.”
The customer is a supplier of wood-based panel and pellet production lines. The order is the first with the European customer and is for a pellet production facility under construction in the US. Demand for wood pellets as a biomass fuel is an increasingly important component of the global energy market, said TurboSonic, and wood pellets as a fuel has been classified by the US EPA as a carbon-neutral fuel source.
