JGC looks to cut emissions at China factories, power plants
Japanese engineering group eyes rising demand on stricter environmental rules
TOKYO — Japanese engineering group JGC has developed an industrial air purifier for cement factories and incinerators in China, where demand for such equipment is rising as companies scramble to meet stricter environmental standards.
China strengthened its environmental regulations in 2015, in order to address its serious air pollution problem. As a result, Chinese factories and power plants are in urgent need of tools that cut back emissions.
In hopes of capitalizing on increasing demand, JGC will set up a joint venture in 2018 with a major Chinese engineering company.
JGC’s purifier is able to cut emissions of the pollutants nitrogen oxide and sulfur oxide by 85% and 90%, respectively. JGC will handle system design and oversee test runs, while its local partner will be responsible for securing orders in China.
