Honda to extend its use of CDTi's new catalyst system

Ian Gilson, CFA

Clean Diesel Inc. ( CDTI ) has changed its name to CDTi although its legal name remains Clean Diesel Inc.

Both Honda and Clean Diesel have announced that Clean Diesel will supply a new palladium only catalyst system (invented by CDTi), first for the 2013 model Accord currently being built in North America, and then to other Honda models. The new system will reduce precious metal content by 22% and Rhodium content by 50%. This cuts the cost of the system by 37% while complying with some of the most stringent emission regulations in the world.

This business will have a significant impact on Clean Diesel's revenue and profit. Over the past two years the company has been impacted by the problems in Japan that had an effect on parts availability. This catalyst will be used in other Honda cars, presumably Accords being built in other countries, on a sequential basis.

In August 2012 Honda sales increased by 59.5% to 131,321 vehicles, the Accord increasing by 89%. The seasonally adjusted sales rate was 14.52 million vehicles as compared to 12.8 million vehicles in 2011.
