US-based Tenneco has announced that it has been awarded its first development contract for a completely integrated selective catalyst reduction diesel aftertreatment system featuring its recently acquired ELIM-NOx technology.
The development contract is between Tenneco’s venture in Shanghai and a major Chinese commercial vehicle engine manufacturer to develop a complete selective catalyst reduction (SCR) system with the ELIM-NOx injector system for truck and bus engines currently scheduled to launch in China in 2011.
The ELIM-NOx system is designed to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions by 70 to 90% using current selective catalyst reduction (SCR) technology. SCR is the process of removing NOx through a chemical reaction and is a leading technology for helping diesel engine and vehicle manufacturers meet the NOx emissions standards.
Gregg Sherrill, chairman and CEO of Tenneco, said: We are well-positioned with our advanced hot-end emission control technologies and diesel aftertreatment capabilities to help engine manufacturers and OEMs worldwide meet increasingly stringent emissions standards. We look forward to supporting our newest customer to meet the upcoming Euro-4 regulations in China.
