MonitorTech Corp. was awarded a contract to supply Indeck Ladysmith LLC's Indeck Ladysmith Biofuel Center, a 90,000 ton-per-year wood pellet plant under construction in Ladysmith, Wis., with its continuous emissions monitoring system.

According to MonitorTech, Indeck Ladysmith chose its MT100 CEMS because of its ease of installation, maintenance and low cost. The system will monitor carbon monoxide and oxygen. The same system has been installed in ethanol and biodiesel refineries, as well as in petrochemical, gas and oil turbines.

The U.S. requires audits to be performed on emissions to ensure they're compliance. MonitorTech will perform those audits, as well as conduct quarterly maintenance of the system.
