As part of the expansion of its capabilities as a supplier of diesel engine components and systems, PurePOWER Technologies, a Navistar
company, has established a diesel engine aftertreatment business. As part of that, the company purchased the aftertreatment business of
Eaton Corp., which included an R&D facility in Santa Clara, Calif.

PurePOWER Technologies LLC, a Navistar company, has over the last two years
established itself as a developer and
supplier of a range of diesel engine
systems, everything from metal castings to fuel systems to emissions-related engine components.
Now the company has taken the
next — and perhaps the most interesting and far-reaching step — by
forming a business dedicated to diesel engine aftertreatment technology.
PurePOWER Aftertreatment Systems
plans to offer a range of aftertreat-
ment technologies, including diesel
oxidation catalysts (DOCs) and diesel
particulate filters (DPFs). More sig-
nificantly, it will also offer NOx reduc-
tion systems such as a zeolite-based
NOx reduction catalyst designed for
ammonia gas dosing through use of a
rechargeable solid medium, packaged
into a cartridge form. This technology,
the company said, is a generation
ahead of current selective catalytic
reduction (SCR) technologies that
use aqueous urea as the reductant.
