Caterpillar Teams with CleanAIR for Emission Retrofit Products

Caterpillar Inc., Peoria, Ill., recently selected CleanAIR Systems, Santa Fe, N.M., as the its strategic alliance partner for emission retrofit products. These products are installed into existing applications in order to reduce hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and diesel particulates.

This alliance encompasses CleanAir's proprietary technology, custom engineering capability as well as flexible manufacturing of diesel particulate filters, oxidation catalysts, three-way catalysts and selective catalytic reduction catalysts. Caterpillar will provide system integration capability, engineering and marketing support, as well as assistance to enable CleanAir to meet the growing demand from the broad Caterpillar customer-base.

The agreement between Caterpillar and CleanAir also allows Cat dealers to effectively meet customers' stringent air quality requirements by offering a responsive and competitive solution. The ability to sell CleanAir's retrofit systems permits Cat dealers to offer a product customized for a particular application, the latest in product technology, and direct access to dedicated product support.

The relationship between CAT and CleanAir Systems is part of a long-term strategy that combines the strengths of both companies, creating a team to deliver cost-effective solutions to customers' increasingly complex emissions challenges.
