Jan. 3, 2012, Waterloo, ON –
TurboSonic Technologies, Inc., a global provider of
clean air technologies, has announced a US$2.7 million
order for turnkey supply of a SonicKleen(TM) Wet Electrostatic
Precipitator (WESP) to control particulate emissions from a wood
pellet production plant. Project completion is scheduled for the 2012
The SonicKleen(TM) WESP is the most advanced wet electrostatic
precipitator design on the market. It is used to control fine
particulate, condensable particulate matter and acid mist emissions
from industrial processes and power generation, providing continuous,
reliable performance and virtually maintenance-free operation.
Our customer is a leading supplier of wood-based panel and pellet
production lines. This order is the first with this 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 as national energy
self-sufficiency and environmental goals are realized. The use of
wood pellets as fuel has been classified by the US EPA to be a carbon
neutral fuel source. The European market has increased its reliance
on biofuels in place of burning coal for heat and power generation,
to reduce carbon emissions. Both the European and US markets are
forecast for significant growth in demand for pellet production.
"I am very pleased by our receipt of this order," said Edward Spink,
TurboSonic CEO. "We have a world class team, strong partners and a
proven technology platform that provide a foundation for TurboSonic's
future success. 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. We
believe that this order represents a growing market for us."
