  • Corning to Supply Diesel Emissions Control Products
May 2007
Corning Inc. announced today it has entered into a long-term agreement to supply diesel emissions control products to Detroit Diesel Corp., a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler AG, which will help the company meet Environmental Protection Agency 2007 regulations that went into effect Jan. 1. Corning and Detroit Diesel worked jointly to integrate Corning DuraTrap filters and Corning Celcor substrates into Detroit Diesel’s emissions control systems for medium- and heavy-duty engines, which will be used in EPA 2007 compliant on-highway applications. Corning is a supplier of advanced cellular ceramic substrates and diesel particulate filters to manufacturers of gasoline and diesel engines and vehicles. The company invented a cellular ceramic substrate in the early 1970s that is now the standard for catalytic converters worldwide. In 1978, Corning developed the cellular ceramic particulate filter to remove soot from diesel emissions. Since 2001, Corning has announced investments totaling $365 million for its diesel manufacturing facility in the Corning, N.Y., area which is designed to make the large filter and substrate products used in diesel engine exhaust treatment systems. The facility began production in 2004.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
