  • Why is Energy-from-Waste slow to catch on in the U.S.?

    Nithin Coca reports in TriplePundit that Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is growing fast in Europe and parts of Asia. But it’s relatively stagnant here in the United States. In fact, the percentage of waste we burn for energy is actually slightly down in the past five years. What’s holding the U.S. back from this potentially sustainable solution? This stagnation is even more ...

  • Air Pollution Control Specs

    As the full effect of the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments continue to impact today’s industry, many companies will be required to install new or additional air pollution control equipment.  With more than 25 years of proven success in a variety of industries, catalytic and thermal oxidation has become a popular method for controlling volatile organic compound (VOC) and hazardous air ...
