A Holliston company has big plans to capitalize on stringent air-emissions standards for diesel engines and is receiving new attention from investors because of it.

Rypos Inc., a 12-year-old technology development firm, announced its first round of outside financing last week — an $8 million Series A financing from Los Angeles cleantech investor Craton Equity Partners. The announcement comes on the heels of Rypos’ doubling of manufacturing space in Holliston earlier this year.

The company makes a device that attaches to a diesel engine’s exhaust system and filters particulate matter out before it is expelled into the air. Company officials say a move by the California Air Resources Board and others to force companies to cut their diesel emissions creates a huge market for its technology.
