GEO2 Wins California Grant

The California Air Resources Board, which is responsible for monitoring and reducing vehicle emissions in the state of California, has picked Woburn-based GEO2 Technologies as one of three winners of the board’s annual Innovative Clean Air Technology Grants. GEO2 Technologies, which we’ve written about here, here, and here, was one of 62 applicants for just three grants awarded by the board, and will receive $185,000 to work on vehicle applications for its diesel particulate filters, which are made from a unique extruded microfiber material. “The grant to GEO2 gives us a chance to demonstrate a budding new technology that could reduce levels of California’s biggest airborne problem, diesel particular matter,” said CARB chairman Mary Nichols in GEO2’s announcement about the grant.
