Every Challenge Has a Backstory
A global chemical company and a major manufacturer of sodium nitrite in North America was in need of an air pollution control (APC) system to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from its production of sodium nitrite. Sodium nitrite is used in various industrial applications from manufacturing dyes to food preservatives.
The goal for the new APC system was to reduce NOx emissions by 90% to comply with the one-hour National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for nitrogen dioxide. The project also needed to be completed on an expedited schedule to meet the regulatory compliance deadline.
