CDTi's Chief Technology Officer to Deliver Keynote Speech at the 6th Annual Global Congress of Catalysis 2015

OXNARD, Calif., Sept. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:CDTI) ("CDTi" or "the Company"), a leader in advanced emission control technology, will participate at the 6th Annual Global Congress of Catalysis 2015 (GCC-2015) being held September 24th to 26th in Xi'an, China. CDTi's Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Steve Golden, has been invited to give a keynote speech titled "Development of Spinel™ Mixed Metal Oxides for Zero-Precious Metal and Ultra-Low Precious Metal Next-Generation TWC." Dr. Golden will present CDTi's new Spinel technology and the potential to use Spinel in tandem with low platinum group metal (PGM) levels to achieve very low emissions. Also, he will discuss initial engine test results demonstrating the potential for an ultra-low PGM option for catalysts.

"Spinel and our other next-generation technologies offer cost-effective solutions for vehicle manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent vehicle emissions standards," stated Dr. Golden. "GCC-2015 is an ideal venue to promote CDTi as a partner to China's domestic OEMs and partners working to attain cleaner emissions. We look forward to building awareness of the benefits of our advanced technologies for the China market."

About Spinel

The Spinel platform is a family of proprietary materials using various base metals that replace costly platinum group metals (PGMs) and rare earth metals in coatings on standard catalytic converters. Spinel works across a wide range of engine and vehicle applications – both gasoline and diesel – and has the potential for significant cost savings for OEMs by dramatically reducing or eliminating expensive PGMs and rare earth metals. The technology promises to enable early, cost-effective compliance with stricter emissions standards in the U.S. and around the world and to mitigate OEM exposure to supply uncertainty and price volatility in the PGM and rare earth markets.
