Controlling Diesel Engine Emissions
In an effort to improve air quality, in 2010, the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) mandated strict emission control standards for
modern light- and heavy-duty diesel engines to significantly reduce
engine emissions, particularly Nitrogen Oxide (Nox) and particulate
matter. In order to comply with EPA emission standards, vehicle
manufacturers use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which
requires a DEF tank to be filled regularly. SCR technology utilizes DEF
to convert Nox gases into harmless nitrogen gas emissions.
