Fleetguard’s Emission Solutions announced the formation of key partnerships to support its business plan. Partners include Johnson Matthey, Engelhard Corporation, Siemens, Motorola, and 3M, whose technologies, in combination with Fleetguard’s exhaust packaging and system integration capabilities, will help their customers to meet current and future global emission regulations.
Fleetguard Emission Solutions was formed in March 2002 by Fleetguard, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cummins, to develop and manufacture systems to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) emissions from engine and power plant exhaust. Target markets include diesel and spark-ignited engines needing retrofitted with catalytic control devices, as well as original equipment manufacturers who require exhaust aftertreatment technology.
Johnson Matthey is a diversified global advanced material technology firm, selected by Cummins to supply catalytic technologies through Emission Solutions to Cummins distributors for retrofitting Cummins engines to reduce vehicle emissions below current standards. Johnson Matthey is also working in partnership with Emission Solutions on select Cummins OEM programs.
Engelhard Corporation was named another key partner in catalytic technology, providing components for particulate filters and oxidation catalysts. Applications served by Engelhard include a portion of International Truck and Engine Corporation engines, Detroit Diesel Corporation bus and coach engines and Cummins engines for the bus and medium duty on-highway markets.
Siemens will supply catalyst components for certain Emission Solutions Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems. Emission Solutions has chosen Motorola, Inc., a company specializing in integrated communications solutions and embedded electronic, to supply hardware for its advanced particulate filter control systems.
Fleetguard Emission Solutions also said it continues to make progress in its joint development activities with 3M, within their partnership to develop composite particulate filter substrates.
