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).

Darfon G320 Microinverter

Darfon G320 Microinverter

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
