But Wait There is More - Tightening Emission Regulations

Emission standards are tightening around the world. These regulations are becoming more stringent with additional laws phasing in over time, almost like the all too catchy phrase heard in most infomercials, "but wait there is more." In Europe, one of the regulations is Euro 6, which states that the nitrogen oxide emissions in light-duty diesel vehicles must be less than 80 mg/km starting in 2014.

Next-Generation Composites Lighten the Load for Automakers

One way to lighten a vehicles weight is to replace metal production components with equally capable plastic counterparts using continuous-fiber reinforcement of injection molded structures with thermoplastic composites. To help the automotive industry get there, we've created an integrated system called Ultracom™. Ultracom™ is a system that, in addition to the semi-finished products and the injection-molding compounds, offers a full development package to support our customers.

Reduce Evaporative Emissions with EvapTrap™

For all solutions, we take a holistic life-cycle approach. Announced today, EvapTrap™ is our latest innovative solution that helps automakers cost effectively meet the tightest emissions standards, like the LEV III emissions regulations, and enable clean air for all to reach a sustainable future. It is the industry's first coating-based solution that adsorbs harmful hydrocarbons inside a vehicle's air intake box that helps to eliminate evaporative emissions. This patented polymer-based coating is infused with activated carbon and proprietary zeolite and is applied directly onto the surface of the vehicle's existing air-intake box.
