  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • Midwest contractor turns pollution into profits - Fred Weber

    Ed Moss knows a good thing when he sees one.  When Moss, maintenance manager for the major construction firm of Fred Weber, Inc., first tried out a fuel-saving device on one of the company’s diesel engines, something clicked right away.  Those first test results, conducted on an engine loading limestone at a mine, showed a fuel savings of 33 per cent, Moss said. What’s more, when his ...
