The VERT® Association (Verification of Emission Reduction Technologies) was founded (also known as AKPF “Arbeitskreis der Partikelfilterhersteller – Working group of DPF manufacturers”) in Switzerland in 1993. Since then, VERT® has developed some of the most important particle filter testing procedures, supported various international partners with retrofit programs and retrofit consulting and established a worldwide network of manufacturers of components, systems, engines, vehicles and measurement devices as well as environmental, medical and technical research facilities specialized in the field of “air quality”. VERT and ASA collaboration officially started at 2016. This collaboration leads to implementation of first retrofit project of public buses in Iran at Tehran. VERT is the competent preferred partner of public authorities, municipalities, megacities and institutions of European and international legislature in the realization of concrete solutions for air quality improvement. As such VERT® has significant influence on the introduction and use of BAT for the reduction of emissions.
As a result of excellent networking with international scientists and legislators, VERT is able to provide its member companies with relevant information and data, enabling them to evaluate business implications and opportunities at an early stage. At the same time, the international network of VERT®, workshops and conferences always keep our members up-to-date on the latest findings and developments in the fields of environment, medicine and technology.
Implementation of various retrofit and firstfit projects in different cities such as Berlin, Tehran, China, Italy, Netherland, Munich, Bogota and London is only a small part of VERT achievement and influential role in emission reduction programs in the world. We offer different particulate filters for retrofitting vehicles as well as construction machines and stationary facilities with consideration to fit the individual needs. This enables us to offer the best solution for each specific application. Our systems are tested and certified according to the most stringent requirements. These certifications enable us to retrofit almost any vehicle or machine without problem.
Air Pollution: World’s Worst Environmental Health Risk
There is an urgent need to reduce levels of air pollution globally. Although air quality measures have had positive results at some locations in the world, millions of people in both developing and developed countries die prematurely every year because of long-term exposure to air pollutants. The health of many more is seriously affected.
The future of the combustion engines hinges largely on efficient techniques for reducing emissions. These are challenges that the catalytic converter cannot perform all by itself. For more than two decades VERT has been involved in the development and testing of various filter emission reduction concepts: As a result of continuous evaluation and research on various filter concepts, today, VERT’s DPF solutions are at a very advanced level. The robust construction and optimum regeneration capacity of our particulate filters make them ideal for installation. Our particulate filter systems, providing optimum operating times, long intervals between maintenance and low maintenance costs.
The systems are effectively designed to trap soot, or particulate matter, from diesel or gasoline exhaust emissions in a variety of light-duty and heavy-duty applications. VERT’s broad portfolio of heavy-duty diesel particulate filters can help meet even the most challenging emissions standards. The versatility of our particulate filters enable their application for almost any vehicle. By using a modular arrangement of particulate filter units, we supply the proper system for any engine size, which can be compactly arranged to fit into a constrained space. The proven solutions, VERT’s filters have been used in millions of vehicles.
Our engineers offer the experience we have gained from many different projects.
