Best Available Technology in Emission Reduction                            

                  VERT® FILTER LIST


What VERT® stands for:

  • An Association dedicated to the promotion of Best Available Technology for emission control
  • The Core objective of VERT® is the minimization of health burden caused by combustion engine emissions, esp. the elimination of Ultra Fine Particles (UFP)
  • Members of VERT® are international manufacturers of engines, testing devices, DPF and SCR systems, as well as of substrate producers, chassis builders, among others
  • VERT® stresses and recommends the application of particle number measurement against a pure particle mass count as very light Ultra Fine Particles (UFP) cause a major threat to health
  • We set the highest quality standards for emission control technology by certifying emission control technologies (VERT® Label) and publishing the VERT® filter list
  • VERT® supports traffic pollution reduction programs all over the world, esp. in megacities

What makes VERT® unique:

  • 20 years of experience in diesel particulate filter technology
  • Pioneer in nanoparticle measurement and retrofitting of diesel particle filters
  • Highest technical standards and procedures which are shared in the VERT® Forum conference every March
  • A close cooperation with science and research institutes with the aim of supporting new findings on health effects and benefits
  • More than 400,000 vehicles worldwide (on-road and off-road) retrofitted with diesel particle filter systems
  • More than 65 verified filter systems
  • Influential role in international legislation (EURO VI regulation; NRMM Stage V)

"Few risks have a greater impact on global health today than air pollution; the evidence signals the need for concerted action to clean up the air we all breathe."
