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.
