New DPF Filter Introduced

Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. announced in November the California Air Resources Board (CARB) issued an Executive Order that allows CDTI to sell its Purifilter(R) EGR diesel particulate filter in the state.

The product is said to address a significant number of EGR systems equipped on heavy-duty trucks currently subject to the California Truck and Bus Regulation, which requires diesel trucks and buses that operate in California to be upgraded to reduce emissions by various deadlines. CDTI says it received the Executive Order from CARB on Nov. 15, 2012.
