ANTI-PARTICULATE FILTERS FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT

Ifiltriantiparticolatoperiltrasportosostenibile_DETAILSOn 24 June the international Convention ‘Sustainable Transport: Energy, Health and the Environment. Problems and solutions’ took place in Rome. The convention hase been organised, with the contribution of Pirelli, by VERTVerification of Emission Reduction Technologies – the international scientific association for the control of polluting emissions.
During the course of her opening address the Minister for the Environment, presented a national Government plan for the fight against smog containing severe and rigorous measures. The measure against heavy transport, which is the most urgent and will be enacted by a decree of law, is constituted by a system of filters to be installed in diesel engined commercial vehicles, which permit the investment of one euro to gain five in terms of social and health costs, given that those vehicles represent 60% of traffic smog.
Anti-particulate filters represent the most immediate and effective anti-smog system now available. In Lombardy, 7,000-8,000 vehicles among trucks and buses are fitted with such filters, against 1,500 in the rest of Italy”, said Bruno Tronchetti Provera, president of VERT and managing director of Pirelli Eco Technology, the Pirelli Group company active in the sector of technology for the control of emissions.

PIRELLI LAUNCHES INCENTIVE PLAN FOR PARTICULATE FILTERS

antiparticolatoincentivi_detailFrom mid October to late December 2009, or until inventory runs out, transport operators could equip their commercial vehicles with particulate filters produced by Pirelli Eco Technology, benefitting from the Pirelli incentive plan.
The campaign, whose aim is to stimulate immediate adoption of the filter systems, which allow for containment of substances damagining to the environment and to health in emissions from the most polluting vehicles, includes three categories of incentives based on type of vehicle: 500 euros for light commercial vehicle filters (vans, minivans, minibuses, etc.), 750 euros for midsized commercial vehicle filters and 1000 euros for filters for heavy commercial vehicles (trucks).
The Pirelli incentives are cumulative with those available from the public administration, for example the Lombardy Region, for purchase and fitting of particulate filter systems.
Feelpure particulate filters remove more than 90% of fine and ultra-fine particle matter emissions (Pm10 and lower), the most dangerous to human health, and 50% of nitrogen dioxide of emissions. Installation of Feelpure filters allows Euro 1-2 vehicles to reach the Euro 4 vehicle category, and Euro 3 vehicles to reach the Euro 5 vehicle category.

eco tech

Pirelli signed a memorandum of understanding with the Hixih Group, a pneumatic manufacturer partner of the Pirelli Group since 2005; the agreement concerns the realization of a filter production plant in Yanzhou. The understanding falls within the scope of memorandums signed with the Italian Ministry of Territorial Protection, Water and Environment and will lead to the realization of a new factory, whose construction is expected for the first quarter of 2010. This new facility will be located in province of Shandong, where the two truck and car tyre production sites are located, hence creating a new diversified industrial development centre, capable of using the synergy from the production and from the commercialisation of the two products. The expended investment according to the 2009-2011 industrial plan, could arrive to 50 million euros within this three-year period (15-20 million euros for Eco Technology), entailing a productive capacity of about 100 thousand filters per year and about 1,200 employees.
