Macrotek Awarded Major Air Pollution Control Contract for Hemerdon Tungsten Project in Southern England

Macrotek Inc., a global provider of air pollution control technologies, announced receipt of a major air pollution control scrubber system contract from GR Engineering, a leading Australian Engineering consultant and contractor, for the Hemerdon Tungsten project. This is the first new mine in the United Kingdom in over 40 years.

The gas clean up system is a combined DRY-WET scrubber system designated as “Best Available Technology” for multiple pollutants including acids, heavy metals and particulate. Additionally, the system requirements include removal of arsenic down to nearly non-detectable levels.

The Macrotek air pollution control system includes a quench and condition of the hot 1000ºC gases followed by acid removal and neutralization with calcium based reagent. Wet gases will be sub cooled, reheated, and conditioned before entering the dry dust collector. Polishing will be accomplished by a dual stage HEPA filter before venting the gases into the atmosphere.

The project has completed manufacturing and installation is expected to begin in early winter.
