    AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- The
 Earth Day 2001 U.S. Clean Energy Agenda has challenged automakers and
 suppliers to improve fuel efficiency of new cars and light trucks to reduce
 global warming pollutant emissions.  Answering this challenge, Emitec GmbH has
 achieved Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) standards with
 environmentally friendly, metal substrate catalytic converters.  In addition
 to significantly reducing emissions and fuel consumption, the converters can
 be nearly 100 percent recycled.
     "Catalytic converters using our metal substrates positively impact the
 environment, allowing 99 percent cleaner emissions," says Wolfgang Maus,
 Emitec president and CEO.  "Emitec hopes to protect the environment by
 reducing emissions, and this Earth Day we continue to strive toward the
 industry goal of zero emissions vehicles."
     Emitec's metallic substrates not only help to reduce vehicle emissions,
 but also contribute to the conservation of environmental resources.  Recycling
 metal catalytic converters retains valuable platinum, rhodium and palladium
 for individual processing to achieve the optimal amount of recycled material.
     Emitec GmbH, headquartered in Lohmar, Germany, is the leading designer and
 manufacturer of metallic substrates for catalytic converters.  The company's
 North American operations, Emitec Inc., are headquartered in Auburn Hills,
 Mich.  Its manufacturing facilities are located in Fountain Inn, S.C. and
 Lohmar and Thueringen, Germany.
