Tecogen begins phase-two testing of its emissions control tech

Tecogen has revealed that joint-venture affiliate Ultra Emissions Technologies (Ultratek) is to begin phase-two testing and development of the Ultera emissions control technology for gasoline vehicles.

This will be supported by a US$6.2m investment following a second round of funding; to date Ultratek has raised a total of US$7m in support of development efforts.

“Results from initial phase one testing of Ultera on a light duty vehicle at AVL’s California Technology Center have now been thoroughly analyzed. The data indicate the patented emissions control system is highly effective at delivering further emissions reduction in criteria pollutants that contribute to smog and are harmful human health hazards beyond what is achieved by currently available commercial technology,” said Robert Panora, Ultratek co-CEO and Tecogen president and COO.

Phase two, due 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.
