GEO2 Technologies Inc. has introduced a new silicon carbide (SiC) substrate for diesel particulate filtering. GEO2’s patented microstructure is poised to drive the next wave of high-temperature filter innovation, effectively removing 99% of pollutants from diesel exhaust while achieving better fuel economy, emissions control and enhanced engine performance.
The new substrate simultaneously achieves high porosity and high strength while delivering lower back-pressure and high trapping efficiency. Also, unlike other SiC products, GEO2 filters are based on a cross-linked microstructure (CLM) that effectively reduces the size, weight and cost of emissions control systems.
“Today, the need for clean transportation technology is critical, given the growing number of health and environmental issues associated with fossil fuels,” said Bilal Zuberi, vice president and co-founder, GEO2 Technologies. “By innovating solutions such as the new cross-linked microstructure SiC diesel particulate filter, we can offer auto manufacturers an affordable means of controlling toxic particulate and CO2 emissions while preserving all the benefits of diesel fuel, including better gas mileage and improved vehicle performance.”
