Caterpillar recently formed Cat Environmental Technologies, a group that brings the development and manufacturing of all aftertreatment technology and products in-house. Cat Environmental Technologies is part of the Caterpillar Engine Component business unit.
The division’s goals include providing cost-effective, robust environmental products and services that exceed expectations for reliability and durability while meeting or surpassing local and national emissions regulations. The division also will strive to provide the industry’s fastest order-to-delivery capability.
All products and services provided by the group will be available and supported through the Caterpillar dealer network. In developing new aftertreatment products and services, the group will utilize Cat’s expertise and extended network in materials, catalysis and performance evaluation to manufacture products that will meet emissions requirements for years to come.
Caterpillar Environmental Technologies currently is manufacturing the diesel particulate filter used for mass transit buses and aftertreatment products for the retrofit market, including school buses and some off-road machinery; also in development are aftertreatment technologies and products for electric power generation. The group also will manufacture the new DPF for use with Caterpillar on-highway engines with ACERT Technology for 2007.
