Clean Diesel Technologies a developer of technological solutions to reduce harmful engine emissions, has entered into a license and distribution agreement with Extengine Transport Systems for
This license agreement is for the technology, manufacturing and distribution rights for Clean Diesel’s patented Catalyzed Wire Mesh Diesel Particulate Filter (CWMF) technology.
CWMF technology is designed for use in a range of diesel engine particulate emission control applications. Extengine will also be responsible for marketing and demand fulfilment for emissions control systems based on this low cost diesel particulate filter technology in the rapidly developing markets of
Extengine successfully demonstrated the CWMF technology in partnership with Clean Diesel to meet the proposed emissions requirements of SEPA, the Environment Protection Authority of China. ‘Official emissions testing in
‘Extengine and Clean Diesel are now working closely together to commercialise superior particulate matter control systems to meet the growing demand for diesel retrofits from China to California to New York City. In particular, the Clean Diesel wire mesh flow-through filter will appeal as a practical, low maintenance and low cost particulate control device for diesel fleet operators and OEMs worldwide,’ said Phillip Roberts, President of Extengine Transport Systems.
The patented CWMF technology represents a series of durable metallic, low cost filter designs to bridge the gap between low efficiency diesel oxidation catalysts and expensive, limited application heavily catalyzed particulate filters.
The wire mesh filter system has been designed to work on its own or with a synergistic fuel-borne catalyst (FBC), such as Clean Diesel’s Platinum Plus, for more effective performance. This combined FBC/CWMF technology is said to be especially suited to solving the problem of delivering a reliable pollution control solution which can be easily retrofitted for the older, higher emission diesel engines expected to be in service for years to come.
