But that’s not the only way Duz Cho sawmill thinks outside of the box – this sawmill boasts a full line of fresh ideas.

January 14, 2015 - Nett Technologies Inc. of Mississauga, Ontario Canada has received verification of its BlueMAX PLUS 100 SCR system by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).The BlueMAX PLUS 100 SCR system represents the industry's only nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) retrofit emission control device to be commercially available to the non-road market. Nett Technologies' BlueMAX PLUS 100 SCR system has been designed to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) by a minimum of 85% from medium and heavy-duty non-road diesel engines ranging between 75 and 560 kW (100-750 hp). In addition to removing NOx and PM, the system also has the added benefit of reducing carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by 95% and hydrocarbons (HC) by 60%.This product is well suited for known PM2.5 and ozone nonattainment areas where controlling both PM and NOx are key factors towards adopting appropriate State Implementation Plans (SIPs) under the Clean Air Act. The BlueMAX PLUS 100 system consists of a passive diesel particulate filter followed by a urea SCR system."The BlueMAX PLUS 100 is a great retrofit emission control solution for non-road engines certified to Tier 1, 2 or 3 emission standards. The system is a durable and versatile emission control solution that extends the years of usage of existing construction and non-road equipment. Thanks largely to its direct-fit design, the system not only meets the latest regulations but is highly efficient in its operation," says Dr. Seyed M. Shameli, Product Development Engineer at Nett Technologies.As an innovator of non-road emission control systems, Nett Technologies Inc. has more than 20 years of experience in the design, development and manufacturing of custom retrofit solutions that control Particulate Matter (PM), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Hydrocarbons (HC), and Carbon Monoxide (CO) emissions from all compression and spark-ignited engines.For more information, visit Nett Technologies online at www.nettinc.com.
