Inco raises C$100 million plan to cut emissions

CANADIAN base metals producer Inco has confirmed it has been in discussions with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment on a program to comply with a draft control order for emissions at the company's Sudbury, Ontario smelting operations.

Inco said it has proposed a C$100 million investment in fluid bed roaster (FBR) off-gas scrubbing technology that would reduce SO2 emissions at the plant by 34%, from the current limit of 265,000
