The Diesel Technology Forum announced that Dow Automotive Systems has joined the forum, a nonprofit association that promotes the use of the most advanced clean diesel engines, fuel and technology in the United States. “Dow Automotive System’s success in increasing energy efficiency in automobiles and large commercial trucks while also reducing exhaust emissions has contributed significantly to the growing improvements in today’s clean diesel technology,” says Allen Schaeffer, DTF executive director.
Dow has developed the Aerify diesel particulate filter designed to reduce diesel particulate emissions by up to 99 percent with low back pressure. “As a result, the Aerify filter helps the diesel engine provide optimal power, torque performance and fuel efficiency – key benefits for diesel engines,” Schaeffer says. “The technology’s performance and design enables a more compact footprint that helps achieve important goals of lower-cost clean diesel technology in smaller spaces – important in all applications of clean diesel, including the of-road segment which is now beginning to meet near-zero EPA emission levels known as Tier 4. We’re extremely pleased that Dow Automotive Systems has joined the Forum and look forward to working with them in expanding the use of clean diesel technologies.”
“As we finalize preparations for commercial production of the Aerify diesel particulate filter this year, we also look forward to participating in the forum’s initiatives for promoting advanced diesel technologies and influencing public policy and education,” says Steve Majkowski, global marketing director of powertrain and emissions for Dow Automotive Systems.
