Montgomeryville, PA.–(BUSINESS WIRE) – July 24, 2012. Environmental Solutions Worldwide Inc. (OTC Markets: ESWW), was notified that its wholly owned subsidiary ESW Technologies, Inc., has obtained an
Executive Order from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for the Company’s ThermaCat-e Active Level III Plus Diesel Particulate Filter System targeted at EGR engines. Effective July 16th, 2012, CARB verified the ThermaCat-e for retrofit on 1993 through 2009 On-Road engine model years, having engine displacement between 4 and 13 liters and a horse power (HP) rating between 150 to 400 HP.
With this new CARB Executive Order DE-12-005, the ThermaCat continues to be a viable product and extends its range of applications in step with the changing marketplace demands.
The ThermaCat-e, as verified, reduces diesel Particulate Matter (PM), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydro Carbon (HC) in excess of 85% while meeting the nationwide stringent nitrogen dioxide (NO2) limitations. This new NO2 limit, which came into effect on January 1, 2009, requires that all verified diesel emission retrofit technologies sold and installed in North America must not increase NO2 emissions by more than 20%.
Mark Yung, ESW’s Executive Chairman stated, “we appreciate the effort by ARB for working closely with ESW to issue this latest Executive Order. The new Executive Order allows the company to sell product into on-road applications with EGR engines, which
our key dealers and distributors have been anticipating. The ThermaCat-e allows ESW to extend its unique product with currently over 2,000 installations across the nation into a sizeable segment of the retrofit market.”
