Ecoalliance, formerly the Automobile Catalyst Plant, which is part of the Ural Electrochemical Combine (UEEK), is located in Novouralsk, Sverdlovsk Region.
Since the last century (from 1968), UEIP has begun working on the development of catalysts for the space industry. The development of catalytic systems for the neutralization of automobile emissions has been carried out since 1989, on the basis of many years of experience in the development and production of catalysts for fuel cells intended for the energy supply of space objects. The physicochemical basis for the production of catalysts has always been and remains the own results of the work of the team of specialists.
Catalytic converters of exhaust gases of cars - devices that convert toxic substances (carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen) into harmless gases (carbon dioxide, water, nitrogen) by catalysis are used on cars in the world since the beginning of the 1980s. In Russia, the issue of equipping vehicles with catalytic converters was discussed before the end of the 1990s. Since 2006, for the first time in Russia, a requirement has been introduced for the mandatory installation of exhaust gas neutralizers for newly manufactured cars.
Since 1988, UEIP has embarked on a step-by-step solution of this problem. In 1989, by the order of the director of UEIP Kornilov V. & nbsp; at the initiative of Danchenko Nikolay Mikhailovich, who later became the director of the Automobile Catalyst Plant, a laboratory of automotive neutralizers was created. Based on the accumulated experience in the development and production of catalysts for autonomous power sources for space objects, a new automotive component was created - a system for neutralizing exhaust gases for motor vehicles, in the same year the first pilot batch of catalysts was produced. The main developers of the first catalysts: NM Danchenko, VI Lukin, SP Denisov, A. Yu. Hoffman, VF Filatov.
In January 1990, Minatomenergoprom approved the Program of work on the creation of production of exhaust gas neutralization systems for vehicles. In 1991, run-through resource tests of neutralizers produced by UEIP in taxis in Moscow.
In 1994, the Automobile Catalyst Plant was built at UEIP. The plant's capacity provided the requirements for the exhaust gas catalysts of all Russian and CIS auto plants (the former Soviet Union).
1998 - the beginning of production of VAZ cars, for the first time in Russia equipped with systems for neutralizing exhaust gases.
2003 - production of neutralizers for AVTOVAZ, GAZ, IZHAVTO, GM-AVTOVAZ was organized.
1998-2005 - developed catalysts for the norms of Euro 2, Euro 3, Euro 4.
2008 - The best supplier of the global procurement network General Motors.
Dec.2010 - Automobile catalyst plant is withdrawn from UEIP and reorganized into Limited Liability Company EKOALYANS.
2012 - absolutely new catalysts corresponding to Euro 5+ norms are certified.
2017 - Catalysts that comply with Euro 6 standards are certified.
A big and not easy way has passed from the idea of creating in Russia modern, not inferior to the world analogues production for the production of automobile catalysts, to an independent competitive company that embodies dreams into reality. It was in the Urals that this idea was born and was realized.
Ecoalliance still remains the largest Russian developer and manufacturer of automotive catalysts and exhaust gas neutralizers for automakers located in the Russian Federation and the CIS, and has many years of experience in the markets of Europe and China.
