Clariant Catalysis & Energy to Exhibit Exhaust After-treatment Catalysts at POWER-GEN 2012

 Former Süd-Chemie catalyst business is now part of Clariant Corporation  Exhibit will showcase solutions for reducing exhaust emissions from combustion engines used for electrical power generation  Innovative Clariant catalysts help customers comply with federal, state and regional regulations

Muttenz, 27 November 2012 –The Swiss specialty chemicals group Clariant, represented by its business line Air Purification, part of its Catalysis & Energy business unit, will exhibit industry-leading emissions reduction catalysts for internal combustion engines at POWER-GEN International 2012 in Orlando, Florida, on December 11-13, 2012. The Catalysis & Energy business became part of Clariant in 2011 through the acquisition of Süd-Chemie. Its extensive portfolio of oxidation catalysts, diesel particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) blocks are manufactured in Needham, Mass., a former Süd-Chemie facility. This site, located outside Boston, is Clariant‘s North American center for all engine emission control catalysts. It comprises research and development, analytical labs and a diesel engine test lab and catalyst rejuvenation facilities.


At booth #3635, Clariant Catalysis & Energy will display its solutions for reducing harmful exhaust emissions from natural gas and diesel engines used for electrical power generation. These include three-way catalysts (non-selective SCR) for rich burn gasoline and natural gas engines, oxidation catalysts for lean burn natural gas engines, diesel oxidation catalysts and diesel particulate filters (CARB Level 3Plus verified).

These catalysts have enjoyed a long history of success in helping customers bring internal combustion engines of all types into compliance with various federal, state and regional regulations, including Tier 4, New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (RICE NESHAP).

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
