LAKE FOREST -- Tenneco will supply clean air technologies on the new Daimler NRM engine family, which is featured on the automaker's 2016 E-Class, C-Class and 2017 S-class global platforms.
According to Daimler, the four-cylinder diesel engine delivers around 13 percent lower fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions, with all aftertreatment technologies configured directly onto the engine in a close-coupled position to enable greater fuel economy. Daimler manufactures Mercedes-Benz autos and vans, as well as Daimler commercial trucks and buses.
Tenneco is supplying the complete hot-end aftertreatment system for diesel applications, which includes the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst, the mixer and the SCR-Coated Diesel Particulate Filter with an SCR substrate in a fully-assembled module with sensors.
"We're pleased to partner with Daimler on this important new family of engines," said Henry Hummel, Tenneco executive vice president and general manager, Clean Air. "We're committed to working with customers like Daimler to ensure that we can provide clean air solutions today that meet emissions requirements today and tomorrow."
Product engineering and development was conducted at Tenneco's global clean air engineering center in Edenkoben, Germany. Tenneco produces the aftertreatment system at its manufacturing facility in Stanowice, Poland.
