Rosatom’s Ecoalliance Designs Lada Testing System

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, June 18, 2019. Novouralsk-based asset of Rosatom’s Ural Electrochemical Combine Ecoalliance Ltd designed special catalytic systems to reduce the toxic impact of AvtoVAZ automobiles so as to get them to comply with the Euro 6c and Euro 6d emission standards, Ural Electrochemical Combine’s press service reports. The company also tested the systems in question. The application of the systems would mean Lada cars could still get sold on the EU markets even after the stricter environmental regulations come into effect.

‘The need to design new catalytic systems for exhaust gas conversion stems from the strict permissible discharge limits for automobiles in Europe. It is due to Ecoalliance developing an additional exhaust catalytic converter with the malfunction diagnostics function (suitable for a wide range of automobile makes) that Lada 4õ4 and Lada Vesta got certified for compliance with Euro 6d by the European certification authorities UTAC and TÜV and can get sold in Europe,’ the press service says.

The project was carried out at AvtoVAZ in 2018, with estimated savings at RUB 268m by 2023.

Now Ecoalliance is the only Russian manufacturer of catalytic systems for exhaust automobile gas conversion. The company operates a full technological cycle from designing the catalyst to manufacturing the diesel and gasoline exhaust catalytic converters to Euro 3, Euro 4, Euro 5, Euro 5+, Euro 6, Euro 6b, Euro 6c, and Euro 6d emission standards.
