Clean Diesel Technologies (CDTI), an emissions reduction company, has signed a commission agent agreement with MJLF & Associates, a shipbroker engaged in ship chartering, sale, purchase and new construction, to make a way into the marine sector.

The agreement will enable CDTI to leverage MJLF’s far reaching relationships with ship owners and fuel suppliers, their involvement in the economic and regulatory trends impacting them, to expand its emission reduction business into the growing marine and off-road market segments.

The partnership agreement will require MJLF to identify key distributors for CDTI’s Platinum fuel additive and Purifier family of emission control products in the marine and locomotive market segments, while, at same time, providing additional value to its global customers.

CDTI CEO and president Michael Asmussen said that this agreement is the product of several months of work and represents a significant step forward in CDTI’s strategy to aggressively address two growing market segments critical to its long term success.

“MJLF’s worldwide presence and extensive relationship network with large target customers will provide the visibility and credibility CDTI needs to build high value fuel efficiency and emission control business across the globe,” Asmussen said.
