The company also reports that they have more than 210 000 MW of electrostatic precipitators (ESP) installed worldwide, offering over 40 years experience in the field.
FGD systems remove sulfur dioxide released from coal-fired power plants and ESP's are used to remove ash particles created during the combustion process. Recently introduced regulations on pollutants are fueling the growth of air quality control systems market worldwide. .
