Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. ("Clean Diesel"), a developer of technology solutions to reduce harmful engine emissions, offers a solution that addresses high diesel prices, particulate emissions, and global warming. Clean Diesel's patented fuel-borne catalyst, Platinum Plus, improves fuel economy for all engines, old and new, up to 10 percent, while reducing particulate emissions up to 25 percent. When used with a simple diesel oxidation catalyst, particulate emissions can be reduced 30 to 50 percent. Use of Platinum Plus catalytically enhances combustion in the cylinder, burning fuel more completely, significantly reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gases, and lowering total operating costs by improving fuel economy. Platinum Plus fuel-borne catalyst is soluble and stable in all diesel fuels used by on-road, off-road, (marine and stationary) vehicles and equipment. It requires no special mixing or freeze protection, and is effective with high, low and ultra-low sulphur diesel distillates, biodiesel and biodiesel/ petroleum diesel blends. It is safe for all mobile, marine, locomotive, and power generation diesel engines. Platinum Plus has been shown to improve the performance of diesel oxidation catalysts, flow-thru filters and particulate traps, and is verified by USEPA through their Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program, for use with DOCs or wire mesh filters. Based on recent test results from an internationally recognized laboratory, Platinum Plus has been shown to provide the lowest Balance Point temperature (the temperature at which the rate of soot oxidation is equal to the rate of soot generation, minimizing back pressure build-up) of all passive Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) systems. Platinum Plus is widely used as part of a passive DPF system in the underground mining industry. In this application, it assures functionality with low sulfur as well as ultra-low sulfur fuels without increasing harmful NO2 emissions, and facilitates a softer filter regeneration, avoiding potentially destructive high thermal loads.
