Technology firm MOVA Technologies Inc. to seek production site in Southwest Virginia
A Pulaski, Virginia-based emerging technology company plans to look for possible production sites in Southwest Virginia later this year or in early 2021, company officials said Monday.
MOVA Technologies Inc. recently completed its proof-of-concept testing of gaseous pollutants through the advanced propulsion and power lab at Virginia Tech, company officials announced Monday during a conference call.
This successful completion will allow the company to proceed with pilot projects for its panel bed filtration systems to remove air pollutants for commercial and industrial applications, including agriculture and fossil fuel energy production — like coal-fired power plants. The technology potentially has global applications.
“With MOVA, the investment came from Southwest Virginia, and we’re committed to Southwest Virginia,” said Steve Critchfield, CEO and president. “We are going to do everything we can to locate the first production facilities somewhere in GO Virginia region one and leave our headquarters here in Go Virginia region two. We’re committed to Pulaski; the administration and headquarters will always remain here.”
GO Virginia is a state public-private economic development initiative. Region one includes the cities of Bristol, Galax and Norton, along with Bland, Buchanan, Carroll, Dickenson, Grayson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington, Wise and Wythe counties.
