Oakland, CA, September 18, 2017 – Red Fox Resources®, a leader in industrial emission control system recycling has completed a move of its primary facility to a new location in Oakland, CA. The new facility will serve as Red Fox Resource’s corporate headquarters as well as the company’s Operations and Technology Center. The new facility more than triples the square footage of the company’s old facility, also located in Oakland. The new facility is located at 4055 Linden Street in Oakland, California.
Red Fox Resources recycles used diesel particulate filters (DPFs), diesel oxidation catalysts (DOCs) and natural gas catalysts from trucks, buses, construction equipment and stationary generators. Red Fox purchases spent emission control parts from fleets, service centers, manufacturers and dismantlers throughout North America.
Red Fox was proud to contribute to the July 2017 “Reman, Rebuild, Replace” column in Fleet Maintenance Magazine. The article succinctly covers the virtues of DPF/DOC recycling. See the full copy below or link to the article in the July 2017 Fleet Maintenance Magazine.

As part of the ratcheted-down emissions regulations finalized in 2001 for on-highway diesel engines, the U.S. EPA set standards – to be implemented in 2007 – requiring that particulate matter (PM) emissions be reduced by 90 percent. To achieve this, engine OEMs developed engines that would operate with higher efficiency and lower emissions.
The engines were equipped with exhaust aftertreatment devices that included diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) system, and required the use of ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and low-ash oils.
