TermiNOx approved for EPA Emerging Technology List
May 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Catalytic Solutions' ECS TermiNOx D selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system has been approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for inclusion on the National Clean Diesel Campaign's Emerging Technology List.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (stimulus bill) provides about $20 million in new funding to support use, development, and commercialization of emerging technologies that reduce emissions from diesel engines.
TermiNOx D, a urea-based SCR system designed to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and non-EGR diesel engines, earned placement on the Emerging Technology List by meeting requirements of the Diesel Emission Reduction Program Provisions under the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
The system is approved for use in the retrofit of 1998-2006 model year on-road heavy-duty diesel engines. It reduces the emission of particulate matter by 25%, carbon monoxide by 85%, hydrocarbons by 85%, and nitrogen oxides by 65%.
Only technologies that have been approved and placed on EPA's Emerging Technology List qualify as emerging technologies for the purpose of funding solicitation. The list can be found at www.epa.gov/cleandiesel/prgemerglist.htm.
Catalytic Solutions manufactures and distributes emissions control systems and products, focusing on heavy-duty diesel (HDD), energy systems, and light-duty vehicles (LDV). The company's website is www.catalyticsolutions.com.
