Wednesday, Jan 25, 2017

Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:CDTI) ("CDTi" or "the Company"), a leader in advanced emission control technology, has partnered with DENSO Products and Services Americas Inc., an affiliate of leading global automotive supplier DENSO Corp., to supply CDTi's enabling technologies to the North American heavy-duty market. Under the scope of the partnership the two companies will launch PowerEdge diesel after-treatment, which will be distributed by DENSO and manufactured by CDTi featuring CDTi's Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) technologies.

"This partnership reflects our continued success in positioning CDTi as a provider of emissions solutions to the global automotive market," stated Matthew Beale, CDTi's CEO. "DENSO's choice of CDTi provides further evidence of our growing technology leadership in the world's largest heavy-duty markets. We are excited to add DENSO to our growing customer base of global manufacturing and distribution partners."

"DENSO strives to provide our customers with innovative products that contribute to the productivity of their businesses," stated Frank Jenkins, senior manager of DENSO's Heavy Duty Marketing Group, DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc. "CDTi shares our commitment to product reliability and durability, rigorous safety and performance standards, innovation, customer service and environmental stewardship."

"Partnering with DENSO supports our continued commercial momentum in the large, fast-growing opportunity for OE-quality after-treatment solutions in North America," stated Jason P. Soika, CDTi's Vice President, Sales & Marketing. "This agreement significantly expands our reach into the multi-million-dollar market for replacement DPFs and DOCs. In addition, being selected as a supplier for DENSO further validates the quality of our OEM replacement products."

Collaborating with CDTI enables DENSO to offer customers an extended range of application coverage by consolidating more than 260 original equipment (OE) part numbers to less than 80. The all-makes strategy provides inventory efficiency by managing fewer SKUs while providing customers with optimal application coverage. Additionally, CDTi is continually introducing OE replacements for emerging applications and monitoring product lifecycle to ensure the portfolio aligns with newly introduced and outgoing technologies.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
A diesel particulate filter, or DPF, is a system that filters exhaust gas flow to capture solid particulate matter (PM) — created as a byproduct of the internal combustion process. DPFs have been used as pollution control devices for both on- and off-road vehicles and equipment since the 1980s. Designed and manufactured in North America, CDTi's DPFs are exact-fit OEM replacements that meet or exceed OEM emissions requirements and are backed by an industry-leading 2-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
A diesel oxidation catalyst, or DOC, is a device that utilizes complex chemical processes to transform hazardous pollutants from diesel engines, turning them into less harmful exhaust, similar to an automobile's catalytic converter. DOCs are normally honeycombs coated with an active catalyst formulation, engineered in combination with a DPF, to dramatically reduce particulate matter (PM) by 90% along with reducing other dangerous gaseous emissions by 50% to 70%.
