ESW CleanTech has acquired the assets of the now defunct Cleaire, a leading manufacturer of diesel particulate-matter filters.
Cleaire ceased operations in January after a costly CARB-mandated recall of their Longmile line of filters.
Officals in the state of Washington have indicated that the Longmile filter may have played a role in the costly 2011 Monastery Fire, compensation for which is currently in litigation. .
According to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), ESW CleanTech will continue to provide technical assistance and warranty support to the Cleaire line of DPFs and will complete the Longmile recall.
ESW CleanTech is a manufacturer of a DPF as well, the ESW ThermaCat.
