Nalco Mobotec Named Emissions Control Technology Company of the Year
Walnut Creek, CA) Nalco Mobotec Inc., a global leader in combustion optimization and air improvement technologies, has been named “Emissions Control Technology Company of the Year” by The New Economy magazine.
The magazine’s Energy and Environment Awards recognize achievements of companies dedicated to furthering the cause of environmental responsibility across corporate structures. Winners share a commitment to corporate and social responsibility and focus on maintaining the environment while offsetting the weight of human impact upon it.
Key sustainable technologies that helped Nalco Mobotec win this award were ROFA™ (Rotating Opposed Fire Air) staged combustion system, along with the ROTAMIX® chemical application system. ROFA technology allows for optimal emissions control for NOx, SOx, carbon dioxide and particulate matter and provides fuel flexibility as well as allowing the co-firing of biomass. When used with the ROFA system, the ROTAMIX system can further reduce NOx emissions and reduce chemical use when compared to traditional selective non-catalytic reduction systems.
“This award recognizes our leadership position in the Emission Control market and solidifies Nalco Mobotec’s and Nalco’s commitment to developing and delivering sustainable solutions,” said Mark Lee, Nalco Company General Manager, Air Protection Technologies. “Recognition from a publication like The New Economy is an indication of the value we create for customers with our solutions.” Lee and Dave Flitman, Nalco Company Executive Vice President and President, Water and Process Services, were interviewed by The New Economy, after accepting the award on behalf of Nalco Mobotec.
