3 Maryland companies get development grants


February 14, 1997

Three state environmental companies got grants through the National Association of State Development Agencies to help them sell in Latin America and Asia.

EA Global Inc., a subsidiary of Hunt Valley-based EA Engineering, received $20,000 to design, build and test a mobile wastewater treatment system. The system is intended to demonstrate EA's environmental engineering capabilities in central China.

ThermoChem Inc., based in Columbia, received $10,000 to help it market its waste-treatment system to Brazil's pulp and paper industry. The process reduces the toxicity of paper mills' discharges, and it also allows the recovery of chemical compounds that can be used for supplementary fuel sources.

Target Environmental Services Inc., also of Columbia, got $10,000 to finance the demonstration of its instruments for detecting spills from chemical storage tanks and pipelines. The money will underwrite trips to Costa Rica, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.

All three grants are funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and administered by the development agency association.
