E-Quality and Tula Form Strategic Cooperation Agreement

WUXI, JIANGSU, China & SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DSF–Chinese vehicle equipment manufacturer E-Quality Tec, Inc. and American propulsion efficiency software company Tula Technology, Inc. have signed a strategic agreement to collaborate initially on three main objectives:


  • Rapidly deploy fully integrated technology, enabling medium and heavy-duty diesel vehicle manufacturers in China to aggressively target simultaneous reductions in both CO2 and NOX for CN Stage VI, China’s emission standard for heavy-duty vehicles
  • Embed Tula’s diesel Dynamic Skip Fire® (DSF) controls software and diagnostics within E-Quality’s production series EQ16 controller
  • Provide customers with a new emissions reduction technology option that also will improve the competitive positions of both companies in the Chinese diesel vehicle market

“E-Quality and Tula are focused on the goals of 2030 CO2 peak emissions and 2060 CO2 neutral emissions for China vehicles,” said Tom Li, CEO of E-Quality. “Our relationship is based on resource sharing and a win-win proposition to maximize the technical advantages of both our companies. After considerable due diligence, we determined that Tula’s technology delivers the superior benefits in fuel savings and emissions reductions necessary to comply with CN VI as well as future, more stringent standards. We believe cooperation between E-Quality and Tula will have the effect of ‘1 + 1 > 2’ while allowing us to provide better options and service to our customers as China’s transportation industry continues to transform.”

“We are very pleased to be partnering with E-Quality and believe our two technologies together will enable a meaningful reduction in NOX and CO2 emissions while improving fuel efficiency in commercial vehicles,” said R. Scott Bailey, President and CEO of Tula. “This cooperation agreement creates a path forward for all companies in China’s diesel vehicle market to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards. Tula is proud to play a role in such an important endeavor for China’s future and for our planet’s future.”
