Dust Control Technology (DCT) named Laura Stiverson as the company’s president. Stiverson previously served DCT as a general manager for nearly five years.

Stiverson’s primary responsibilities will continue to revolve around new product engineering, business development and customer service.

“Laura has been taking us in new directions for some time,” CEO Edwin Peterson says. “And we felt it was appropriate that her energy and passion be formally recognized.”

According to DCT, Stiverson joined the company in 2008 after earning her undergraduate degree in biochemistry. Her educational background has been an asset in the DCT’s work with odor control chemistry, the company says. Currently the company’s primary focus is on natural products that react on a molecular level with odor vapor, eliminating offensive smells with safe, biodegradable formulations.

“During the course of growing our dust control business, we have encountered a variety of opportunities to expand our scope,” Stiverson says. “These opportunities have largely been a result of repeated inquiries from businesses that had an unmet need within their industries. Over time, we have become more of a solutions provider, with the expertise to address a much wider range of applications. These new business segments are growing far beyond our initial expectations.”

Dust Control Technology manufactures atomized mist equipment for applications in recycling, demolition, waste and scrap handling, mining, slag and ash management, coal processing, landfills and other industries. The company is headquartered in Peoria, Ill.
