What is a Euro 6 truck?
Euro 6 engines were introduced by the European Commission and are designed to help reduce the level of pollutants released from vehicle exhausts. The emissions standards state that the permitted level of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emitted from a diesel engine is required to be reduced by 55%. To do this, the European Commission stated that every new truck manufactured from September 2016 onwards has had to comply with these regulations.
To do this, a Euro 6 truck requiredthree high-technology methods to be implemented…
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (ERG)
ERG reduces NOx emissions by recirculating a portion of the engine’s exhaust gas back to the engine’s cylinders.
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
A DPF in a Euro 6 truck captures particles of soot in the exhaust gas. These are then burnt to regenerate the filter and balance exhaust gas emissions.
Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
SCR uses diesel exhaust fluid to convert NOx into nitrogen and water. This is a harmless gas that occurs naturally in the environment.
