COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins Inc. has initiated a new venture within its filtration business unit to create and sell solutions to treat the byproducts from engine combustion.

The Fleetguard Emission Solutions unit has been formed to provide options for customers attempting to meet the tightening emissions regulations around the world.

The venture, says Cummins, fits well with its long-standing commitment to work towards a cleaner, healthier, and safer environment in all aspects of its business.

The technology offered through the Fleetguard Emission Solutions business will enable reciprocating engines to cost-effectively meet or exceed future U.S., EPA, and international emissions requirements. This business will research develop and commercialize systems and products for use in mobile and stationary applications.

As well, the company says operations will include the retrofitting of the existing engine population with emissions control devices and the development of emissions system solutions for Cummins and other OEMs for future emission requirements.

Mike Cross, vice-president of Fleetguard Emission Solutions, will lead the new venture.
