Ultra Emissions Technologies Ltd. Key Developments

Ultra Emissions Technologies Ltd. to Initiate Phase 2 Development for Emission Control Technology for Gasoline Vehicles

Tecogen Inc. announced joint venture affiliate Ultra Emissions Technologies Ltd. is slated to begin Phase 2 testing and development of the Ultera emissions control technology for gasoline vehicles. The new phase of testing will be well supported by ULTRATEK's $6.2 million in cash on hand following the recently announced second round funding; to date ULTRATEK has raised a total of $7.0 million in support of development efforts. Phase 2 testing and development, slated to begin later this month, will also be performed at AVL's vehicle test cell. The second round testing will utilize a more refined design of the Ultera prototype system and will include two gasoline powered vehicle models, one certified for both domestic and European use while the other has certification for European markets only. These models were selected as representing very advanced, high-mileage vehicles for which the ULTRATEK team's industry assessment indicates are vehicle types of high importance but with inherent emissions challenges. Phase 1 testing focused on simulated driving cycles prescribed by federal regulations for vehicle certification. In these tests, criteria pollutants (those contributing to smog and negatively impacting human health) were reduced in all simulated drive conditions, vastly improving emissions performance when compared to currently available emissions control technologies.
