The Toro Company agreed with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to install a catalytic oxidizer system to control emissions at its Bloomington, MN, U.S. engineering test facility. When fully operational, the new system will reduce carbon monoxide and other contaminants in the exhausted air by more than 90%.

In January 2008, Toro discovered an issue with its current exhaust system, reported it to the MPCA, and started discussions on how to manage emission levels. The new system maximizes the benefit of Toro’s engineering test group, but also helps to reduce other contaminants not currently regulated. Under terms of the agreement with the MPCA, Toro will pay a penalty of US$30,000 and the system must be up and running by Aug. 31, 2009.

Toro is partnering with Wenck Associates, an environmental engineering firm based in Maple Plain, MN, to design and install the scrubber technology. The total investment is approximately $1 million.
