Skopje/Macedonia – Now Johnson Matthey plans to produce a new generation of catalysts for both light duty and heavy duty diesel applications according to tighter emissions legislation coming into effect from January 2014 in the EU.

The extended facility in Macedonia will have an additional two manufacturing lines and brings the site’s total capacity to around 10 million catalysts. The site currently employs 450 people and the extension will create an additional 200 jobs. The new extended plant will predominantly produce SCR (selective catalyst reduction) catalysts used to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) from diesel engines.
