Eminox and IPRL would develop exhaust after-treatment systems for India in compliance with emerging legislation, with a highly talented pool of engineers and senior management.

The addressable market size is ₹6,000 crore for light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles and ₹2,000 crore for off-highway applications, said IPRL officials.

“We have very ambitious plans with IPRL to develop and supply EATS for a range of diesel and CNG engines used off-road and on-road across the Indian market,” said Jog Lall, OE sales & marketing director, Eminox.
