Collaboration with the EPA

EPA_seal_for_profilesThe EPA and many clients with NOx compliance challenges are excited about Know-NOx technology. Know-NOx participation in research, testing, and problem resolution has earned favorable recognition with many local EPA districts.  The PRDD/Know-NOx technology appears to be the best available option for ambient temperature NOx abatement compliance with Part 50.11 of the National Primary & Secondary Ambient Air quality Standard for Oxides of Nitrogen. 

Not only is the Know-NOx technology orientation campaign helping clients understand the methodology and evaluate cost effective compliance options, it is helping the EPA understand a new and valuable NOx abatement option.
