Ethylene Oxide Emissions
Ethylene oxide (EtO or EO) is widely used across various industries for the production of solvents, detergents, adhesives, antifreeze, textiles, and pharmaceuticals. Ethylene oxide is also present in sterility for cosmetics, fumigants, and hospitals for sterility of surgical equipment.
“The regulated emission market is a source of continued organic growth for the Company,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO of Kontrol. “In a short period, time we have been able to deliver leading hardware and software solutions to assist our customer with the real-time monitoring of ethylene oxide emissions. To date the Company has delivered numerous real-time monitoring technology solutions which are both stationary and portable. The majority of the deliveries are to the USA market with other markets including Australia and Mexico.”
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is proposing new health protections to reduce exposure to EtO including more stringent air emissions standards and additional protections for workers. www.epa.gov/hazardous-air-pollutants-ethylene-oxide. The ability to continuously monitor and quantify ethylene oxide is central to eliminating sources and reducing long-term exposure to this hazardous air pollutant.
Based on current supply chains and lead times the new orders are anticipated to add to revenues in Q4, 2023 and Q1, 2024. The Customer will not be named for industry competitive reasons.
