Ricardo to collaborate with Kailong on clean heavy-duty diesel aftertreatment technology
13 June 2017
Ricardo and China’s Kailong High Technology Co., Ltd have signed a collaboration agreement on Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) technologies for heavy-duty diesel engine applications.
Located in the city of Wuxi, Kailong is one of China’s leading exhaust aftertreatment technology suppliers to the expanding Chinese heavy-duty diesel sector. With the impending implementation of the China 6 heavy-duty diesel emissions requirements, Kailong has selected Ricardo as technology and engineering partner to assist it in developing new products for the next generation of much cleaner heavy-duty engines.
The collaboration is aimed at enabling Kailong to develop its product range as a complete aftertreatment systems supplier—including DPF as well as SCR technology—with which the company’s customers can achieve both China 6 and Euro VI standards, while also providing a robust platform for future emission standards. In particular, Ricardo will assist Kailong with state-of-the-art system design, control strategy and on-board diagnostics (OBD) expertise.
