Addressing the need for fuel efficient and cost effective solutions for automakers, Tenneco Inc. (TEN) introduced its latest clean air emissions technologies at the 2013 Frankfurt IAA Motor Show. The company focused on systems integration, thermal management, materials science and predictive tooling for developing various new solutions, which will abide by the global emission standards.
The new clean air technology will reduce NOx, hydrocarbons and CO2 emissions. This technology help automakers in abiding by the U.S. Tier 3 and EU6 and 7 emissions legislation and will also ensure good performance and durability of the vehicle.
Tenneco’s Hydrocarbon Manifold Dosing solution directs diesel fuel straight to the engine manifold. This is a low cost solution to make the regeneration of the diesel particulate filter more efficient.
The Compact Mixing Zone solution of Tenneco, combined with the SDPF technology, avoids the formation of any deposit while converting injected urea droplets into ammonia. This solution also makes the after-treatment system more compact in size.
Tenneco also came up with Gasoline Particulate Filter technology. This facilitates the abiding of the EU6c emissions regulations for 2017 model year vehicles, which places a cap on the emissions particulate number.
Tenneco also came up with Electrical Valves for Low Pressure EGR and Electrical Valves for Cylinder Deactivation and Acoustic Tuning. Valves for low pressure EGR helps in reducing NOx emissions by 50%. The Valves for Cylinder Deactivation and Acoustic Tuning offers a small, lightweight and low cost solution for accurate sound design and noise control in tailpipe applications.
Tenneco is a leading manufacturer and supplier of emission control, ride control systems, and systems for the automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the aftermarket. Currently, the company retains a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).
