Pulaski firm’s experimental technology could bring jobs to region
A Pulaski, Virginia, firm is developing carbon filtration technology that could have global clean energy applications and ultimately create hundreds of jobs in far Southwest Virginia.
MOVA Technologies, which was established in 2014, plans to produce panel-bed filters that would separate out both particulate matter and gaseous pollutants, like those coming from coal-burning power plants or chemical plants.
The company is completing prototype fabrication and about to embark on final testing, Steve Critchfield, the firm’s president and CEO, said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with the Bristol Herald Courier.
The filters are expected to capture coal fly ash, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide and suspend it in a solid sorbent material for safe transport — so it could be sold to companies that need those chemicals, he said.
