MOSCOW (MRC) -- Belco Technologies
Corporation, a DuPont company, and Lundberg, LLC, a Dustex company, have signed
an agreement to collaborate on the supply of air pollution control systems on an
exclusive basis around the world, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.
partnership applies to air pollution control systems for refining and
petrochemical plants, as well as to coke calciners associated with refining and
petrochemical plants, and is valid for 10 years.
The BELCO and Lundberg
systems enable refineries and petrochemical plants to meet strict emission
controls and clean air regulations worldwide while staying in continuous
operation – and compliance – 365 days a year. By scrubbing flue and exhaust
gases, the BELCO systems and Lundberg Wet Electrostatic Precipitators reduce
emissions, particulates, SOx and NOx, and also minimize other pollutants and
sulfuric acid mists.
Under the new agreement, which extends to all parts
of the world with the exception of the People’s Republic of China, Lundberg will
exclusively offer its Geoenergy E-Tube Wet ESP technology as part of a BELCO
scrubbing system in the noted industries, while BELCO will solely use the
Lundberg E-Tube Wet ESP in its scrubbing systems for the noted industries. BELCO
will act as prime contractor for projects with Lundberg coming in as
subcontractor to BELCO.
"The partnership with Lundberg allows both of our
companies to offer refineries and petrochemical plants air pollution control
systems with proven, reliable technology, thereby leaving refiners and
petrochemical plant operators free to focus on production instead of worrying
about emissions control and compliance," said Edward Hutter, applications
manager, BELCO. "This agreement is a sign of the faith and trust we have in each
other’s technical capabilities and systems.
"We are proud to partner with
the leading supplier of scrubbing systems for the refining and petrochemical
industries. The combination of our industry-leading technologies ensures that
our clients will receive world-class solutions offering both performance and
reliability, resulting in full and continuous compliance with their
environmental regulations," said Doug Giarde, CEO, Lundberg.
