Houston, TX –– Merichem Company announced today that it has been awarded a contract for the supply of LO-CAT® Sulfur Recovery Technology to WIN Waste Innovations to remove Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) from the Tunnel Hill and Sunny Farms Landfills in Ohio. WIN Waste is the largest waste-by-rail company and one of the largest private companies in the U.S. waste sector.

“Innovation is in our name, and sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do,” said WIN Waste President and CEO Robert C. Boucher Jr. “By selecting Merichem and its LO-CAT system, we are employing the best technology to further protect the communities in which we operate.”

With removal efficiencies of over 99.9 percent and up to 100 percent turndown, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is safely converted to elemental sulfur, thereby creating an even cleaner environment around the landfill. Merichem’s LO-CAT’s aqueous-based ambient temperature process features a chelated-iron catalyst that is applicable to any gas stream. The process uses no toxic chemicals and produces no hazardous waste byproducts. The produced solid sulfur “cake” may be reused as a fertilizer and soil conditioner.

“The benefits of removing H2S from landfills cannot be underestimated,” said Kendra Lee, CEO of Merichem. “Now is the right time to provide our industry-specific application that provides 99.9-percent H2S removal using LO-CAT technology in response to the landfill industry’s immediate needs.”
