Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. announces the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has issued an Executive Order that allows CDTI to advertise, sell and install its Purifilter(R) EGR diesel particulate filter pursuant to an exemption while CDTI is waiting for a full and final verification from CARB.
“We are extremely pleased to have received the Executive Order from CARB,” says Craig Breese, Chief Executive Officer of CDTI. “The verification process has been lengthier than we had anticipated due to the unique and proprietary nature of the product. However, we remain confident that full verification by both CARB and the EPA will occur in the near future.”
The Purifilter is a passively-regenerating DPF and is said to provide filtration and regeneration efficiency for the removal of particulate matter. The product addresses 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.
