For more than four decades Envitech has pioneered major advancements in air pollution control technology. In the 1970's this included more than 90 percent of all EPA-sponsored wet scrubber research, and during the 1980's it meant being the first to develop and install air pollution control systems for newly regulated dioxins/furans and heavy metal emissions from incinerators.
During the energy crisis of the late 1970's, Envitech personnel conducted much of the early research on syngas clean-up from coal gasification and fluidized bed combustion. Concern for global climate change in recent years coupled with high oil prices has generated renewed interest in clean and renewable energy sources. Envitech has led the charge with extensive work in gasification and pyrolysis from biomass and waste, biofuels, and other renewable energy projects.
