Webasto, ESW Group to partner

Posted on December 17, 2012

Webasto Product North America and ESW Group announced the integration between their two technologies that will give fleets and municipalities the opportunity to obtain DERA (Diesel Emission Reduction Act) funding for emission control and idle reduction equipment.

Webasto is a leading manufacturer of fuel operated heaters that eliminate the need to idle for engine pre-heat and interior cab comfort. These high efficiency heaters provide many benefits to fleets and owner operators including fuel savings, reduced engine wear, driver comfort and safety in addition to helping them comply with anti-idling regulations.

ESW Group is committed to delivering high quality diesel emission reduction technologies and services that surpass industry and regulatory standards. Their DPF (diesel particulate filter) system removes diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of diesel engines. They have superior filtration efficiency of particulate matter, compact design and a wide range of applications.

The EPA awards funding for diesel emission reduction projects through competitive grants that are reviewed by the National Clean Diesel Funding Assistance Program. The grants fund projects that reduce emissions from existing diesel engines through various strategies including emission control and idle reduction technologies. 

Webasto’s engine-off heaters and ESW’s diesel particulate filters are a perfect fit for these grants.
