Filter technology

  • 30-Mar-2011 02:36 EDT

BASF's advanced SCR (selective catalytic reduction) on Filter technology combines NOx and PM (particulate matter or soot) control on one substrate while maintaining a performance level similar to using separate substrates, thereby preserving room on often space-limited heavy-duty diesel vehicles. The technology reduces NOx and PM diesel engine tailpipe emissions and meets increasing global emissions requirements including 2010 U.S. heavy-duty diesel regulations, according to the company. SCR on Filter technology reflects the effort and innovation of more than 650 catalyst experts at BASF’s Catalysis Research and Development centers worldwide who design and deliver emissions control technologies offering regulatory compliance for light-duty gasoline and diesel engines, heavy-duty diesel engines, motorcycles, and small engines.

New Holland is ramping up its focus on vehicles that burn alternative fuels, unveiling the prototype for a methane-powered tractor set for introduction in the 2020 time frame. The engine slashes operating costs, reduces emissions and cuts noise.
Commercial vehicles are beginning to adopt alternative energy sources, but the transition remains slow. Batteries and an array of renewable fuels are seeing more usage, but costs and infrastructure remain hindrances for these fragmented technologies.
Hoist Liftruck Manufacturing is bringing full electrification for some of the biggest forklift trucks, motivated only in part by regulatory pressures. They are also proving to be less expensive to operate versus their ICE counterparts.
Various levels of electrification, connected solutions and alternative fuels are among the technology pathways that will lead to reductions of CO2, according to AVL's Dr. Marko Dekena. He spoke with Truck & Off-Highway Engineering about a variety of topics ahead of this year's AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference.
