Emissions reduction is a goal of the EPA and SCR emissions are on their radar. The trucking industry, in most cases, has committed to working toward cleaner trucking, but for the average fleet manager or small trucking operations owner, understanding the impact and implications of SCR emissions regulations can be challenging.
What is SCR anyway? Starting the beginning, let’s make sure we have a working definition of SCR. SCR stands for selective catalytic reduction and is a means of converting nitrogen oxides with the aid of a catalyst into diatomic nitrogen and water.
And, why does it matter? SCR technology is one of the most cost-effective and fuel-efficient technologies available to help reduce diesel engine emissions. All heavy-duty diesel truck engines produced after January 1, 2010, are required to meet the latest EPA emissions standards. SCR emissions technology can reduce emissions up to 90 percent while simultaneously reducing HC and CO emissions by 50-90 percent.
