Pirelli Bringing its Diesel Technology to Scandinavian Markets
Pirelli Eco Technology, the Pirelli Group company operating in the field of pollution control technologies, has signed a partnership with Swedish diesel particulate filter specialist GB Environment Consulting AB in order to distribute the new Pirelli Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) systems and spare parts in the Scandinavian, Finland and the Baltic markets.
The Pirelli Diesel Particulate Filter systems, known as Feelpure, are produced using silicon carbide, a thermal-shock-resistant ceramic material, and on average allow for a 95 per cent or greater reduction in particulate matter emitted by diesel engines and a 50 per cent cut in NO2 emissions. With this new partnership, Pirelli Eco Technology continues to pursue its growth strategy across Europe. Over the last few months the company has begun selling its products in the UK, Germany, Italy and Benelux. Pirelli DPFs are certified LEC for the London Low Emission Zone, VERT-tested, homologated by the RDW for the Dutch market, BAFU-certified for Switzerland, homologated for Italy and Denmark and are undergoing testing for homologation in Germany.
“We are extremely proud of the partnership we signed with GB Environment Consulting AB,” said Stefano Sanchini, Pirelli Eco Technology general sales manager. “GB Environment fulfils our mandatory requests of reliability, after sales service capability, market knowledge and technological skills in the DPF business.”
Göran Blohm, owner of GB Environment Consulting AB, welcomes Pirelli Feelpure to the Scandinavian Market: “Our Company has got offers from many particle filter producers over the last year to represent them, but all were refused from me, I waited for Pirelli, I followed the development of the Feelpure System and we know today that we represent one of the best and most reliable particle filter system in the world based on additive regeneration. We are also proud to see that the Feelpure is approved from VERT (the hardest filter system test in the world).”
