Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, NoTox develops and produces diesel particulate filters using silicon carbide (SiC) materials. The seller is Silentor NoTox, a Danish company providing a range of muffler technologies to the automotive industry. The acquisition accelerates Corning's commitment to supply a comprehensive range of advanced diesel particulate filters to the automobile, truck and bus markets worldwide. Industry analysts anticipate that the market for diesel particulate filters could exceed US $300 million by 2005.
