Ekoplant that provides dust filters to control air pollution has entered the Indian market. In a press meet in Kolkata, the company claimed that Indian industries can, from its products, have the opportunity of using combustible processes causing gaseous emissions that enable them to meet the legally stipulated air pollution norms within acceptable cost limits. In recent years, the government has tightened air pollution norms whereby industries like steel, aluminium, cement and glass are now required to ensure their emissions meet the standard of particulate matter – of being less than 10 mg per cubic metre.
Antonio Zocche, Director of Sales, Ekoplant, summarised the technical advantages of their products. Marco Gramigna Junior, Managing Director, Ekoplant, said, “We have brought a new technology and named it E3. The size of the filters depends on the process and the flow rates. Not every company can do that and so it’s something that sets us apart from the competition.”
