Dust Control Technology (DCT), a global innovator in dust and odor control, has announced the appointment Laura Stiverson as president.

Stiverson served as general manager for DCT for nearly five years. Her primary responsibilities will continue to revolve around new product engineering, business development, and customer service. She is described by CEO Edwin Peterson as “uniquely qualified in experience and temperament to lead the firm in exploring new markets, services, and equipment designs.”  

Stiverson has been cited as instrumental in developing a number of the company’s products, including the OdorBoss family of machines, and the successful new Fusion equipment design. “Laura has been taking us in new directions for some time,” said Peterson. “And we felt it was appropriate that her energy and passion be formally recognized.”  

Incorporated in 2004, DCT is a leading supplier of open-area dust suppression equipment. Engineers continue to develop atomized mist technologies to bring new levels of effectiveness and versatility to dust and odor management.

“It’s a natural pairing of mechanical and chemical technologies,” said Stiverson. “We’ve demonstrated that the equipment design is far more effective than commonly-used approaches to odor control, and our goal now in expanding our line of additives is to combine product efficacy with the highest level of environmental stewardship.”  

The OdorBoss can be used with a wide range of odor control additives, precise metering of surfactants and odor suppression chemicals.  

Joining the firm in 2008, Stiverson earned her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry. Her educational background has been a big asset in the company’s work with odor control chemistry. 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,” said Stiverson. “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.”
