Corning Inc. has announced a multi-year agreement with Detroit Diesel Corp. for the supply of advanced diesel emissions control products. Corning and Detroit Diesel worked jointly to integrate Corning DuraTrap filters and Corning Celcor substrates into Detroit Diesel's emissions control systems for medium- and heavy-duty engines which will be used in EPA 2007 compliant on-highway applications.

Corning is a supplier of advanced cellular ceramic substrates and diesel particulate filters for manufacturers of gasoline and diesel engines and vehicles. Since 2001, Corning has announced investments totaling $365 million for its diesel manufacturing facility in the Corning, N.Y. area which is designed to make the large filter and substrate products that are used in diesel engine exhaust treatment systems. The facility began production in 2004.
