Even those who allege a general knowledge of their country’s history may be a little surprised at this. It was none other than disgraced President Nixon that did much to bring environment control laws to the table, culminating in the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Years later, as global warming and climate change ring its respective alarm bells across the globe, globally recognized accords are being signed into law.
Around the time of Nixon’s ground breaking legislation, an environmentally conscious company was set up, providing discerning customers, then already, with pretreatment screens and perforated plate screens wastewater treatments. The company, still today, also provides its clients with proper management assistance in regard to securing their mechanized inventories and applications. Services that have environmental consciousness and sustainable developments in mind are engineering, marketing and sales.
The North American company has captivated European interests and minds. Progress and development continued with the German engineering of an original FSM perforated plate belt screen, now in use on both sides of the Atlantic. But years earlier, it was an Italian interest that started out as a designer and manufacturer of conveyors. Bulk solids handling equipment has been developed.
Today, the perception is still rife that most industries are not doing enough to reduce their carbon footprint. And yet those that falsely perceive are the very customers that continue relying on heavy industry. As indeed they should. But it is indeed industries that are being closely monitored by way of nationwide and global legislation. The abovementioned companies are certainly doing its part in providing industries with a degree of self-sufficiency that allows them to be sustainable while remaining intensely productive.
And as this note opened, they have been there since day one, ensuring that there need not be a day zero anytime soon.
