AIR X DEF:
In support of EPA 2010 emissions standards, oxides of nitrogen and particulate matter (PM) are reduced by 90% from 2004 standards to near-zero emissions levels. In order to meet these new standards and the needs of customers, engine manufacturers have invested in new and innovative technologies. The leading technology being used to achieve the emissions goals is SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction). This proven aftertreatment technology enables the engine to be fully optimized for performance and fuel economy.
How Selective Catalytic Reduction Technology Works:
SCR technology is designed to permit nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction reactions to take place in an oxidizing atmosphere. It is called "selective" because it reduces levels of NOx using ammonia as a reductant within a catalyst system. The reducing agent reacts with NOx to convert the pollutants into nitrogen, water and tiny amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) - natural elements common to the air we breathe everyday. The reductant source is usually automotive-grade urea, otherwise known as Diesel Exhaust Fluid, which can be rapidly hydrolyzed to produce the oxidizing ammonia in the exhaust stream. SCR technology alone can achieve NOx reductions in excess of 90%.
