If Governments and their environmental agencies research will discover that is possible to decrease up to 60% of the emission of pollution that the industrial process generates when using fired-coal and/or iron ore.

Industries that use coal in their industrial process, use the equipment ESP to filter and retain the particulate material that is generated.
Unretained material is released into the atmosphere through the chimneys.

A new technology, the TCS Technology, is already being implemented in the Brazilian mining company Vale S.A, in Vitoria / ES - Brasil.

This new technology allows the ESP can be operated at a much higher voltage, allowing the capture of 100% of particles with equivalent diameter between PM 0.1 and PM 2.5 micron and, of course, also the largest.

There is a real possibility that all particles smaller than PM 0.1 will be retained, within 2/3 years, when some developing electrical components are available.

It would be of great value, if the large companies that use iron ore and / or coal in their industrial processes sent a technician, who knows ESP-Electrostatic Precipitators, to our office in Brazil, to know "in loco" how this new Technology eliminates the atmospheric pollution generated by the burning of coal or/and iron ore.

Usually when I visit Tokyo (at least twice a year), it's on my way back to the US from a much dirtier city in Asia (ie Delhi, Jakarta, Bangkok, Beijing, etc.). So I'm always enamored, not only with the organization of society, smooth delivery of services, and cleanliness of the streets, but also with the freshness of the air, clean taste of the tap water, beauty of green spaces, and cleanliness of streams and rivers. It sure looks and feels clean after spending a month in Beijing or Delhi lol! The light pollution is a problem but it doesn't affect sleep when the capsule hotels don't give a window anyways.
