LianDi Clean Technology Inc. distributes a wide range of clean technology along with customized valves and equipment to China’s petroleum and petrochemical industry. The company also provides associated value-added technical and engineering services.

The company today provided a business update. Total orders during the first nine months of fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 were $85 million, an increase of 86.4% from the same period last year.
