Bend-based International Tech Corp. hopes to break ground on an activated carbon recycling facility in Prineville.

“It’s an ideal location for what we are doing,” said Mike Ballentine, the company’s CEO. “There are so many advantages to the [Rhoden’s Investments-owned Lamonta Road] property. It used to be a power plant, and there’s all kinds of infrastructure that is already in place there. So our technology is essentially going to be a plug and play.”

The technology that Ballentine speaks of essentially takes expired activated carbon filters and makes them usable again.

“Carbon is used in purification of air, water, gas, and vapor streams,” he explained. “They use it in drinking water — you have probably seen the Britta filters for example. They use it in aquariums.”
