“There is a global demand for healthier air and increasingly sophisticated methods of air pollution control,” said DuPont Environmental Solutions Business Director James Pawloski.



“Combining Belco’s technology for sulphur and nitric oxide emission reduction with DuPont’s suite of technology for sulphuric acid alkylation, sulphuric acid regeneration and sulphur gas recovery gives refinery customers a single source of solutions for their most difficult sulphur challenges,” added Pawloski.



Established in 1968, Belco has been a member of the international Neptune Technologies group since 1989. The company designs and delivers gas cleaning systems used to eliminate particulate and toxic component emissions by the refining industry.


Belco will be integrated into DuPont Environmental Solutions, a part of DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise, and its headquarters will remain in Parsippany, New Jersey.
