Cummins India Ltd., one of the leading power solutions company that designs, manufactures, distributes, and services engines and related technologies, launched an innovative clear air solution – Retrofit Emission Control Device (‘RECD’) in collaboration with PI Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd.
The product was launched at the Cummins India Office Campus in Pune in the presence of Ms. Shveta Arya, Vice President – Distribution Business & New and Recon Parts Organization (DBU & NRPO), Cummins India, and Mr. Irfan Pathan, Founder & CEO, PI Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd.
As a part of this contract with PI Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd., Cummins will be marketing RECD through its vast distribution network in India. RECD is built on filterless technology and based on Electrostatic Precipitation fundamentals. It is highly efficient in improving air quality and capturing Particulate Matter (‘PM’) from the air with more than 70% efficiency.
On this product launch, Ms. Shveta Arya said: “Cummins India is celebrating 60 years of powering the nation with innovation and dependability. We are happy to collaborate with PI Green Innovations Pvt. Ltd. for RECD to be marketed and distributed by Cummins in India. This collaboration provides an excellent opportunity for both the organizations to bring together our strengths and create new opportunities to expand and enhance the product offerings we deliver to our customers. The newly launched RECD provides a viable solution for our customers to meet the PM compliance requirement. Our customers and communities depend on our collective response to improve the health of our planet while creating prosperity for all. Considering the ever-increasing carbon footprint, we will continue our efforts towards lowering emissions across our product range, which is well aligned with our goal of Destination Zero strategy to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.”
Speaking at the launch event, Mr. Irfan Pathan said: “We are honored to be associated with one of the global leaders like Cummins. This association is not only an encouraging validation of PI Green’s technology but also of the fact that innovative and meaningful initiatives can lead to a significant transformation. In partnership with Cummins, PI Green Innovations endeavors to address emissions at source and make cleaner air accessible to all.”
RECD’s clear air filterless solution does not require manual cleaning as there is no choking. One of the key advantages of this device is minimal backpressure which ensures the safety of the Cummins engine. This device also does not need any water, chemicals, or solvents and saves energy as it does not require active regeneration and is not affected by exhaust temperature. It is resistant to a wide range of in-use DG set conditions, and remote installation is also possible. The RECD is installed after the DG exhaust (muffler/silencer), and no modifications to the exhaust are required. The separated particulate matter can be collected and used as a high-value raw material in the paint, dye, and plastics industries, eliminating the need for disposal and secondary contamination. The product is all weatherproof, needs minimal maintenance with a simple, efficient, and sturdy construction that provides constant performance and long operational life.
