Caterpillar Inc. said it has selected CleanAir Systems, Inc. Santa Fe, NM, as its strategic alliance partner for emission retrofit products. These products are installed into existing applications in order to reduce hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides and diesel particulates.

This alliance encompasses CleanAir’s proprietary technology, custom engineering capability as well as flexible manufacturing of diesel particulate filters, oxidation catalysts, three-way catalysts and selective catalytic reduction catalysts. Caterpillar will provide system integration capability, engineering and marketing support, as well as assistance to enable CleanAir to meet the demand from the Caterpillar customer base.

The agreement between Caterpillar and CleanAir also allows Cat dealers to sell CleanAir’s retrofit systems which permits the dealers to offer a product customized for a particular application, the latest in product technology, and direct access to dedicated product support, Cat said.
