VENTURA, Calif., Oct. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDTI) (“Clean Diesel”), a cleantech emissions reduction company, announced today that its Heavy Duty Diesel Systems division has received nearly $1.3 million in new orders for its verified (approved) emission reduction products under the California Air Resources Board’s Lower-Emission School Bus Program to be used in the retrofitting of Northern California school buses. Shipments and revenue recognition began in the third quarter and are expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2011.
The orders were received from Emissions Retrofit Group, a key distributor of Clean Diesel’s ECS-branded emission reduction products. The orders consist primarily of Purifilter® Plus diesel particulate filter (DPF) emissions reduction systems. This hybrid DPF system employs both passive and active regeneration and is verified by the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board. Reducing harmful emissions from school buses is an important step in reducing children’s exposure to harmful effects of toxic particulate matter emissions. Clean Diesel’s Purifilter® Plus reduces diesel particulate matter by more than 85% and is ideally suited for the retrofit of school buses providing a simple plug-in regeneration that can be executed mid-day, resulting in minimal interruption to a typical school bus schedule.
