Air Pollution Control System

Game changing technologies that can significantly help the underserved community!  History demonstrates that power plants and oil refineries that pollute our air, water and food are located in poor neighborhoods of Black and Latino communities.

This technology can remove the toxins and heavy metals to the standards of EPA.  The lack of any solution implemented that cleans the plants to meet minimum standards has led to the forced shut down of coal power plants across America.

This same technology can be used to remove day-to-day toxic emissions from oil refineries from plants including the Chevron oil refinery in Richmond.  This technology can be integrated into the global operations of our oil refineries to cut emissions and heavy metals delivering a cleaner brighter future for our youth!

Learn how this patented technology saved a California mine from shut down by controlling emissions and helps recover precious metals delivering ROI after implementation in less than one year!
