Tenneco, based in Lake Forest, Ill., and Cormetech announced today that they signed a joint development agreement to collaborate on designing ultra-large diameter selective catalytic reduction catalysts for marine engine applications.

The Marpol Annex VI and EPA Tier IV regulations require an 80 percent reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions, driving the need for engines to include after-treatment strategies such as selective catalytic reduction. Tenneco’s SCR solution, incorporating the Cormetech catalyst, will be designed to help the marine industry comply with the new emission regulations.

Tenneco is an established leader in designing and developing diesel after-treatment solutions, supplying commercial-vehicle and engine manufacturers globally,” Tenneco chief technology officer Tim Jackson said in a statement. “We are pleased to partner with Cormetech to develop a unique after-treatment solution for marine engine manufacturers, leveraging our after-treatment technology and engineering capabilities in this market.”

“For more than 20 years Cormetech has provided reliable state-of-the-art SCR catalyst for the reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions. We are excited about this collaboration with Tenneco. The joint development takes advantage of the synergistic capabilities of Tenneco and Cormetech to meet the needs of customers in the marine sector,” Cormetech vice president and chief technology officer Chris DiFrancesco said in a statement.
