CATAGEN helps automotive OEMs meet emissions targets faster, with higher accuracy and repeatability. Our unique OMEGA technology can replicate engine flow rates, temperatures and gas compositions for any kind of engine. Accredited by UK Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA),  Applus IDIADA, TUV ATEEL and ECO Cert.  

We offer tailored services to support OEMs to meet aftertreatment development milestones and emissions compliance (homologation). We help manage development issues with the catalyst ageing process and help  manage cost implications such as PGM prices and the rising cost of fuel. 

The OMEGA is capable of thermal and chemical degradation of aftertreatment components. Our chemical degradation is through a bespoke poisoning setup which can be used for a range of different compounds such as, sulphur and phosphorus which can help with OBD limit ageing. 

CATAGEN Becomes Official Supplier for DUCATI 2023 & 2024

As Ducati pushes the limits of performance and technology, CATAGEN has played a vital role in delivering aftertreatment systems which are known for their exceptional repeatability and reproducibility, helping Ducati create motorcycles that not only perform at their best but also comply with the demanding global emissions regulations.
Andrea Goggi, Product Requirements Director at Ducati said “Ducati found in  CATAGEN a viable and reliable partner in achieving the brand’s targets of excellence in performance and compliance with emissions regulations”

Industry Challenges

One of the key changes Euro 5 legislation is the introduction of OBD Stage II monitoring systems. OEMs need to test their OBD systems to show they will effectively work when emissions levels of CO, THC and NOx pass a threshold limit, also known as OBD limit.

This legislation will come into effect for new vehicles in 2024 and existing vehicles in 2025.

CATAGEN can ensure you meet these new regulations using the OMEGA reactor to age your Catalysts all without an engine.


With an increasing focus on emissions compliance globally and the impact this has on motorcycle design and development, engineers must prepare for the changes in standards.

Here at CATAGEN, we can apply our expertise, knowledge and experience to help you meet the new motorcycle emissions regulations on time.

Having worked with multiple Motorcycle and Car OEMS ensuring they have achieved emissions certification and met all product launch deadlines. We have designed a road map giving you a step by step approach and vision for emission compliance.
