US-headquartered LiqTech International says it has has received a new $450,000 order for Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) from Emigreen B.V. Netherland, a firm that is expert in the emission control of industrial combustion engines.

By integrating LiqTech's DPF products with the generator/engine set, 99.98% of soot particulates can be removed.

LiqTech explain that environmental regulations are expected to get tougher with more rigorous enforcement in the future and the luxury boat market segment has recognized that it needs to operate in an environmentally friendly way if they wish to call on any port in the world. Generators on luxury-class super-yachts or mega-yachts are driven by efficient diesel engines, but they still create an appreciable amount of soot and NOx gasses that are both a pollutant in harbors as well as dangerous to people's health.

Mr. Finn Helmer, CEO of LiqTech, noted, "We believe the potential in this segment is very large and we look forward to working with Emigreen B.V. to significantly expand the revenue opportunities for both companies."
