OGLEBAY NORTON WINS FLUE GAS DESULPHURIZATION CONTRACTS.
Flue Gas Desulphurization is the process of removing sulfur dioxide emissions from combusted coal to assist operations in complying with emissions requirements such as the Clean Air Interstate Rule issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2005. When high calcium limestone or lime is utilized in the FGD process a generated by-product is synthetic gypsum which is suitable for use in wallboard, cement and various agricultural applications.
Michael Lundin, Oglebay Norton President and CEO, said that, "Securing these contracts is consistent with our previously stated strategy of focusing on growth in our four principal end markets: industrial, building products, energy and environmental. We believe that the quality, location and production capacity of our lime and limestone operations allows us to provide the long term value necessary to actively pursue and secure additional supply contracts in this growing end market."
Oglebay Norton Company, a Cleveland, Ohio-based company with a 150-year tradition of service, provides essential minerals and aggregates to a broad range of markets, from building materials and environmental remediation to energy and industrial applications.
