Cummins Selects Corning For Emissions Control for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Diesels

11 October 2006

Corning Incorporated and Cummins Emission Solutions, a business unit of Cummins Inc. have entered into a long-term agreement for the supply of Corning emissions-control products. This multi-year agreement will help Cummins meet EPA 2007 regulations which take effect Jan. 1, 2007.

Corning and Cummins Emission Solutions worked jointly to integrate Corning DuraTrap filters and Corning Celcor substrates into an advanced aftertreatment platform optimized for a range of Cummins medium- and heavy-duty engines which will be used in EPA 2007 on-highway applications.

Corning is a leading supplier of advanced cellular ceramic substrates and particulate filters to all of the world’s major manufacturers of gasoline and diesel engines and vehicles. The company invented an economical, high-performance cellular ceramic substrate in the early 1970s that is now the standard for catalytic converters worldwide. In 1978, Corning developed the cellular ceramic particulate filter to remove soot from diesel emissions.

Cummins Emission Solutions products include Mobile Selective Catalytic Reduction (MSCR) systems, Active and Passive Particulate Filters, Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs), hydrocarbon injection systems and aftertreatment software/control systems.

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.
