LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- March 14, 2013

Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN) has been selected as a recipient of a John Deere 2012
supplier innovation award for the development of an integrated selective

4 Final diesel aftertreatment system.

The award is presented to a select group of suppliers who have demonstrated
innovation in a product or service they provide to John Deere. Award
selections are based on four factors – creativity, feasibility, collaboration,
and bottom-line impact. John Deere created the supplier innovation awards in
2010 to promote innovation in the company’s supply base and recognize
suppliers who think creatively.

aftertreatment products including diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) and diesel
particulate filters (DPF) for certain Tier 4 interim applications in 2010.

with John Deere on aftertreatment technology for reducing nitrogen oxides
(NOx) and particulate emissions,” said Neal Yanos, Tenneco executive vice
president. “Tenneco’s commercial vehicle business continues to grow, driven by
the strength of our clean air technology portfolio and our commitment to help
our customers comply with increasingly stringent global emissions
regulations.”

Tenneco is a $7.4 billion global manufacturing company with headquarters in
Lake Forest, Illinois and approximately 25,000 employees worldwide. Tenneco is
one of the world’s largest designers, manufacturers and marketers of clean air
and ride performance products and systems for automotive and commercial
