ACCT has been awarded the 2017 Technological Innovation of the Year by The Times Higher Education.
The judges said that they were looking forward to the technology 'making a difference to all our lives'.
'Scarcely a day goes by without a report of increasing pollution from diesel engines and the health problems that it causes in our cities,' the panel said. 'Loughborough’s innovative solution, producing a technology to pretty much remove the worst of it, along with clear technology transfer plans, impressed the judges.'
ACCT was also a finalist in the Institution of Engineering and Technology Innovation Awards 2017 (Transportation category).
At the 2017 National Air Quality Awards, ACCT was a finalist for the Innovation and Leader in Low Emissions Awards, making Loughborough the only university to be shortlisted.
Mostly recently, ACCT has received the prestigious Autocar Sturmey Award.
