Corning Incorporated has entered into a long-term agreement with Detroit Diesel Corporation 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 leading supplier of advanced cellular ceramic substrates and diesel 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.
