A global corporation between passionate and tenacious engineers from
Dinex Group has done the technology development of the Eminizer™ concept internal in Dinex in the last years.
“At Dinex Ecocat Oy, Finland we have very committed highly educated chemical
and mechanical engineers, whom have been deeply involved in the development of
the concept. Therefore it was natural for us to place the production of
the substrates and coating here in Finland,” Torben Dinesen, continued.
The new technology will be is used in the Eminizer™ emission technology
platform. The secret behind is an improved material for the production of
particulate filters, by a combination of high porosity silicon carbide
substrate (DiSiC-HP) and a multi functional coating, which offers several and
substantial benefits in the process of manufacturing exhaust systems. With the Eminizer™
technology it is possible to make a reduction of up to 50% of the size and weight
of the exhaust emission system at the truck. The Eminizer technology will also
be used in the Large Engine industry under the brand name “Modulizer”
The local General Manager, Tommi Blomberg,
is also proud, “Dinex Ecocat Oy has had many economically difficult years
recently, however now, after the acquisition by Dinex and joining forces with
them, the company will be announcing 2014 as it’s first profitable year in
seven years. This investment represents the next step on a transformation of
the company and strengthens the future of the company as a one of the leading
manufacturers of emission systems and catalyst substrates of all types.”
