The Toro Co. reached an agreement with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to install a catalytic oxidizer system to control emissions at the company's Bloomington, MN, 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 emissions levels. Under terms of the agreement with the MPCA, Toro will pay a penalty of $30,000, and the system must be up and running by Aug. 31. 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.
