BALLERUP, Denmark, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LiqTech International, Inc., (NYSE: LIQT), a clean technology company that manufactures and markets highly specialized filtration technologies, today announced that it has received a new order for Diesel Particulate Filters ("DPF") for $450,000 from Emigreen B.V. Netherland, a firm that is expert in the emission control of industrial combustion engines.
Environmental regulations are expected to get tougher with more rigorous enforcement in the future and the luxury boat market segment has recognized that it needs to operate in an environmentally friendly way if they wish to call on any port in the world. Generators on luxury-class super-yachts or mega-yachts are driven by efficient diesel engines but they still create an appreciable amount of soot and NOx gasses that are both a pollutant in harbors as well as dangerous to people's health.
By integrating LiqTech's DPF products with the generator/engine set, 99.98% of soot particulates can be removed.
Mr. Niko Dalpis, CEO of Emigreen B.V., stated, "We have worked closely with LiqTech International A/S over the years and chose them to partner with us in providing a solution to the soot and gas problem that large industrial diesel engines can create. We have found them to be a very competent and reliable partner in addressing this serious and growing problem."
Mr. Finn Helmer, CEO of LiqTech, noted, "We believe the potential in this segment is very large and we look forward to working with Emigreen B.V. to significantly expand the revenue opportunities for both companies."
