ABC Illinois Excellence in Construction Award: Alt Fuels Project


MKD Electric is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Associated Builders and Contractors- Illinois Chapter 2017 Excellence in Construction: Award of Excellence for the Alt Fuels project. MKD Electric was selected as the electrical contractor to perform the electrical and instrumentation scope of work that would result in a clean technology-alternative fuel facility for heating limestone in kilns, in order to bake lime for steelmakers. The engineered fuel is recognized by the EPA as a non-hazardous fuel that will partially replace the use of coal as fuel for the plant and significantly reduce emissions.

It is significant that MKD Electric, an ABC-affiliated merit shop electrical and instrumentation contractor, was awarded and successfully completed this project in a predominately union controlled limestone plant. Due to the success of this project, MKD has been named the preferred electrical contractor for this company, serving multiple plants in the area.


ABC-Illinois Chapter is a trade association dedicated to serving construction professionals within the state of Illinois. They promote free enterprise by advancing the merit shop philosophy in the construction industry through education, advocacy, and business services.

The Excellence in Construction Awards recognizes outstanding construction projects throughout the state.
