LAKE FOREST, IL--March 14, 2013: Tenneco Inc. has been selected as a recipient of a John Deere 2012 supplier innovation award for the development of an integrated selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and mixing system which is incorporated into a Tier 4 Final diesel aftertreatment system.

“Tenneco's commercial vehicle business continues to grow, driven by the strength of our clean air technology portfolio and our commitment to help our customers comply with increasingly stringent global emissions regulations.”

The award is presented to a select group of suppliers who have demonstrated innovation in a product or service they provide to John Deere. Award selections are based on four factors -- creativity, feasibility, collaboration, and bottom-line impact. John Deere created the supplier innovation awards in 2010 to promote innovation in the company's supply base and recognize suppliers who think creatively.

"Tenneco is honored to be recognized for our innovation and proud to partner with John Deere on aftertreatment technology for reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate emissions," said Neal Yanos, Tenneco executive vice president. "Tenneco's commercial vehicle business continues to grow, driven by the strength of our clean air technology portfolio and our commitment to help our customers comply with increasingly stringent global emissions regulations."

Tenneco is a $7.4 billion global manufacturing company with headquarters in Lake Forest, Illinois and approximately 25,000 employees worldwide.
