Two environmental agencies have verified the capabilities of the Miratech V-Cat diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC).
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified that the Miratech V-Cat meets the requirements of the 40 CFR 1042 Marine Rebuild rule for Electro Motive Diesel 710-series engines.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has also verified the emissions-level performance of the Miratech V-Cat for Electro Motive Diesel (EMD) 16-710G3 series engines in locomotive applications.
The V-Cat system was designed to address several challenges regarding emission control efforts, such as limited space, low exhaust gas temperatures and keeping exhaust back pressures low, the company said. The EPA lists the V-Cat as a clean diesel emerging technology for marine two-stroke, Tier 0, Tier 1 and Tier 2 turbocharged and roots-blown EMD 567, 645 and 710 engine models.
