Earlier this year, we informed St. Francis residents of our plans to install a regenerative thermal
oxidizer (RTO) at the facility. RTOs have become widely recognized as the most effective way to
destroy odor-causing compounds. CLCM is making a multi-million dollar investment to bring
this leading edge emissions control technology to the container reconditioning industry.
Since that time, we have:
Engaged Catalytic Products International (CPI) to design and custom manufacture a RTO
for the facility;
Submitted a permit application to the Wisconsin DNR (WDNR), which is undergoing a
thorough review; and
Confirmed with the WDNR our ability to commence construction and prepare for theRTO’s arrival at the St. Francis facility.
In May of 2018, representatives from CLCM, and CPI were on site to break ground for the RTO’s concrete foundation.
Photographs of the progress can be viewed above.
