November 24, 2015

Lake Forest, Illinois, November 24, 2015 – Tenneco (NYSE:TEN) announced today that Thomas Spinks, Ph.D., business development manager for the company’s global large engine group is a featured speaker at the 2015 International WorkBoat Show, December 1-3, 2015 in New Orleans. Spinks, who is scheduled to present on Thursday, December 3, at 10:30 am, will provide insight into some of Tenneco’s best practices used in the development, testing and integration of its high horsepower diesel aftertreatment technologies for the marine market that are designed to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 and IMO Tier III emissions regulations.

Titled “Selective Catalytic Reduction: Regulatory Impact on Vessel Operation,” Spinks will discuss how Tenneco utilized a full system approach to address the compliance, costs and other challenges unique to the marine market in developing its SCR aftertreatment system. He will also highlight recent sea trials the company conducted on marine vessels in both freshwater and saltwater environments to demonstrate how the system’s form, fit, function and performance capabilities can be easily integrated into a vessel’s engine and control architecture.

The company’s exhibit, located in the Morial Convention Center, booth #1117, will feature Tenneco’s complete large engine SCR aftertreatment system, which incorporates a complete dosing control solution specifically designed for marine engine applications up to 7,500 kW or 10,000 hp. The system is designed to enable propulsion and auxiliary engines to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 and IMO Tier III regulatory requirements and provide precise and reliable delivery of liquid urea via a proprietary, high-performance injector design, a precision mechatronic fluid delivery pump and customizable remote monitoring and controls. The system also features an integrated soot blower option, which ensures effectiveness of NOx reduction and overall catalyst performance when high sulphur fuels are used or engines operate at low exhaust temperature levels.
