Navistar’s emissions strategy shift

It will now use urea


 

You may have heard that truck and engine maker Navistar International has said it will change its decade-long approach to pollution control in its diesel engines, mixing its practices with that of its competitors to meet 2010 federal emission standards.

Navistar will use urea with its new technology, In-Cylinder Technology Plus, to further reduce smog-causing nitrogen oxide from its heavy duty diesel engines.

The new engines, which Navistar said are also expected to meet 2014 and 2017 greenhouse gas standards, are expected to reach the market in early 2013.

Veteran truck journalist, and my good friend, Steve Sturgess in a recent blog wrote a thought-provoking piece on this matter.

It’s well worth your time to give it a read.
