Overview

The social and political landscape of the world is ever changing. With environmental awareness and corporate social responsibility reaching ever increasing heights, there has been a profound movement towards “environmentally friendly” solutions to the world’s energy requirements. Within the United States of America, federal and state governments are moving forward with mandates to clean up heavy-duty diesel engines. Internationally, particularly in developing Asian countries, governments are seeking to balance rapid economic growth with environmental concerns. Other countries are seeking to improve trade balances by taking advantage of their oil resources without having to import light distillate products for fuel oil production.

With our focus of offering energy end users products that enable adaptation to changing environmental regulations, various business opportunities have arisen for commercial development of APT products. APT is approaching these markets with solutions tailored to specific regional needs. The below illustrates the various markets for APT around the world.
