Navistar has announced it has reached an agreement to purchase an interest in Amminex, a Danish company that provides a metal ammine-based NOx reductant delivery system that can help reduce NOx emissions in truck engines.

“By leveraging our assets and those of Amminex, this agreement supports Navistar’s three-pillar strategy of product leadership, competitive cost structure and profitable growth,” said Daniel C. Ustian, Navistar chairman, president & CEO. “Amminex offers another tool for Navistar to explore cost-effective, customer-friendly technologies that fit our MaxxForce Advanced EGR platform, meeting emissions requirements while removing the burden liquid urea places on the industry.”

The Amminex technology meshes well with Navistar’s approach, the company said, allowing the OEM to be responsible for NOx reduction with no outside influences needed.

“Our in-cylinder approach with MaxxForce Advanced EGR technology remains our prime path to achieve a tailpipe emissions compliance level of 0.2 NOx,” said Jack Allen, president, Navistar North American Truck Group. “The Amminex technology fits perfectly into our Advanced EGR prime path – assuring that the responsibility of emissions compliance remains with the OEM and eliminating the need for customers and third parties to invest in a new infrastructure for liquid urea.”

“It is a major breakthrough for Amminex that a global leader such as Navistar has entered into a series development agreement as well as a long-term supply agreement with us,” said Jens Hinnerskov, Amminex CEO. “Our ability to attract investment from a wide spectrum of entities bodes well as we continue to focus on advanced power solutions and clean technologies.”
