Tecogen receives U.S. patent for catalyst formulation for Ultera emissions
Tecogen has been granted a U.S. patent for a customized catalyst formulation developed for its Ultera emissions reduction process. The patent covers the material composition and manufacturing method used in its production. This material provides excellent performance while being impervious to corrosion in applications where the engine fuel contains significant contaminants such as sulfur and phosphorus. The material and the manufacturing process were developed under contract with Environex, an independent catalyst testing and development company located in Malvern, PA. In exchange for the know-how and agreement to supply the company with the catalyst, Tecogen has granted Environex a license to use the catalyst formulation other than in internal combustion engines and combined heat and power systems, both under 1,000 kW, for which Tecogen retains exclusive rights.
