AUDUBON, Pa., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Air Resources Board
(CARB) has extended its verification of the Johnson Matthey  CRT^® Particulate
Filter system to include 13" diameter systems that will work on large bore,
high horsepower 1994 to 2006 model year on-road engines up to 650 hp.

As the global pioneer and leader in controlling emissions from mobile and
stationary sources, Johnson Matthey's CRT^® filter has revolutionized modern
diesel emissions reduction. The first filter verified by EPA and CARB, the CRT
filter has become the industry standard for Heavy Duty Diesel Retrofit
Technology.

Marty Lassen, JM Director of Regulatory Affairs and Marketing, said the newly
verified CRT filter size now allows application on large bore engines that are
used in Class 7 and 8 trucks affected by CARB's Truck and Bus regulation.

"The essence of our 13" CRT filter design is that it is both cost effective
and compact so it will fit on vehicles where competitor systems cannot due to
their larger sizes," explained Lassen."The CRT filter is also the most
trusted filter globally; it has been used for more than 200,000 retrofits."

He added that it is also the CRT Filter is fully passively regenerating
system, meaning that it requires no operator intervention to clean soot from
the filter, and does not raise the temperature of the diesel exhaust.

"Also, with this verification extension," said Lassen, "CARB has approved the
JM policies for swapping (filter cleaning flexibility) and re-designation
(moving the CRT system from one vehicle to another). These approvals give
users a lot of flexibility in their daily operation and maintenance of
vehicles equipped with CRT filters."
