AUBURN HILLS, Mich., June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Emitec Inc. will produce its 100 millionth metal catalyst substrate for the worldwide market in June. This production milestone demonstrates Emitec's commitment and expertise in exhaust aftertreatment and evaporative emissions technology. Emitec's METALIT(R), a metallic substrate, used in the catalytic converter components of exhaust emissions reduction systems, has been proven to show improvements in both performance and overall system cost when compared to the traditional ceramic catalytic converter based systems. The turbulent flow conditions created by the specific foil geometry forming the catalytic cells reduces size and cost of the exhaust gas purification system. This has been recognized by the gasoline engine manufacturers as well as the light duty, heavy duty and on/off highway diesel and gasoline engine manufacturers worldwide who are successfully applying Emitec's technologies.
