Environmental Solutions Worldwide Inc Receives Orders, Ships ThermaCat Level III Diesel Emissions Reduction Catalyst

CONCORD, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Environmental Solutions Worldwide Inc. (ESW) (OTCBB:ESWW) (FWB:EOW) announced today that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary ESW Canada Inc. (ESWC) has received orders for its proprietary (3.)Level III diesel catalyst branded ThermaCat™ from International Truck and Engine's "Green Diesel Technology" division.

The ThermaCat™ active Level III catalyst systems, manufactured by ESWC, were delivered in the first week of October and installed on school buses in South Georgia fleet. The ThermaCat's™ were engineered to be a complete bolt on retrofit kit designed to replace the bus's existing mufflers.

The ThermaCat™ is engineered to reduce the highest level of Particulate Matter (PM) while operating in low temperature applications such as school buses and waste truck haulers. The ThermaCat™ is currently in the government ‘on and offroad' verification process with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As an important part of the verification process, units have been installed on several applications and have logged thousands of accumulative durability hours.

Mr. David J. Johnson, ESW's President and CEO commented, "We are very excited to see the first sale and installation of ThermaCat's™ into the school bus community. Due to the low temperature operating conditions required for the use of the ThermaCat™, we believe it has the potential to be sold into the largest demographic of these types of applications."

California Air Resources Board (CARB) Diesel emissions control technology levels:

  • Level I, PM reduction between 25-49%
  • Level II, PM reduction between 50-84%
  • Level III, PM reduction greater than 85%
