Clean Diesel Technologies has signed a non-exclusive license agreement with Combustion Components Associates (CCA), a provider of air pollution control technologies for the power generation and transportation industries.
The license covers the Clean Diesel patented ARIS technologies for control of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions using selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and related patents. The license gives CCA access to these patents in North America and Europe for vehicular and other applications.
Under the terms of the agreement, Clean Diesel will receive upfront fees and per-unit royalties. The agreement licenses CCA to work with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Tier One and exhaust system suppliers, targeting those who will combine CCA proprietary technologies with ARIS. The suite of licensed patents includes Clean Diesel’s innovation of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) in combination with SCR to minimize engine emissions while simultaneously improving fuel efficiency.
Clean Diesel and CCA have also agreed on terms for an additional license to be signed for Japan and China. CCA already holds North American licenses from Clean Diesel for retrofit emission control applications in vehicles, stationary power generation, railroad and marine engines.
Last week, Clean Diesel Technologies licensed its patents for technologies for control of NOx emissions by selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to Robert Bosch GmbH on a worldwide, non-exclusive basis. (Earlier post.)
