TurboSonic Technologies of Waterloo has received an order worth €1 million for air-pollution control equipment, the company has said.
The order is for a system to control sub-micron particulate and condensible volatile organic compounds emissions from a major corn processing operation in Illinois.
The system that is being ordered will help set a new standard for emissions control in corn milling and ethanol production plants.
"We believe this order opens a new emerging market for our proprietary products and represents a major growth opportunity for TurboSonic," said chief executive Edward Spink.
TurboSonic provides state-of-the-art air pollution control equipment and products for enhancing the performance of industrial process equipment. A high proportion of its customers are in the food and beverage sectors.
