Tecogen’s Ultera(R) Emissions Technology Patented in 19 EU Countries
WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 14, 2020 / Tecogen Inc. (NASDAQ:TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas-powered on-site power, heating, and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce that its core patent for Ultera emissions reduction technology has been validated in 19 EU countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany and France, all key markets for potential commercialization.
The Ultera technology has demonstrated significant emissions reductions (including CO and NOx) in stationary engines, gas powered vehicles, and forklift trucks, and has been the subject of three papers presented at various Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) World Congress events. Tecogen has been working with Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift of America to demonstrate the use of Ultera to enable a near-zero emission propane forklift, and the Ultera emissions reduction technology has been identified as meeting California's Best Available Control Technology (BACT) for stationary non-emergency engines. Comprehensive European patent protection for the Ultera technology supplements Tecogen's portfolio of Ultera patents in key markets, including the United States and Japan.
"We are pleased that we now have comprehensive patent protection in the EU for our Ultera emissions control technology," stated Robert Panora, Tecogen's President and Chief Operating Officer. "This is an important milestone for Tecogen as we consider licensing and commercialization opportunities for our Ultera technology for stationary engines, forklifts, and gasoline vehicles in key markets. As emissions regulations become stricter, we expect demands for criteria emissions reductions in the EU to drive interest in commercializing Ultera applications."
Tecogen Inc. designs, manufactures, sells, installs, and maintains high efficiency, ultra-clean, cogeneration products including natural gas engine-driven combined heat and power, air conditioning systems, and high-efficiency water heaters for residential, commercial, recreational and industrial use. The company is known for cost efficient, environmentally friendly and reliable products for energy production that, through patented technology, nearly eliminate criteria pollutants and significantly reduce a customer's carbon footprint.
