TROY, MI — ArvinMeritor’s Commercial Vehicle Systems plans to collaborate with Gillig Corp., on new emission control technologies for the North American transit bus industry. The announcement was made at the American Public Transit Association Bus & Paratransit Conference in Denver, Colo.
Gillig, which manufactures heavy duty transit buses, is a 114 year old privately held corporation located in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Through the partnership, the two companies will first introduce technologies designed reduce particulate matter and NOx emissions, which are common pollutants in urban areas. Products will include the ArvinMeritor Thermal Regenerator and ArvinMeritor Plasma Fuel Reformer.
“By leveraging our long-standing relationship with Gillig, we intend to benefit both the transit bus industry and the overall environment by creating technologies that reduce harmful emissions, without sacrificing performance or operational efficiencies,” said Pedro Ferro, vice president and general manager of ArvinMeritor’s Commercial Vehicle Exhaust business.
