Home » The Scoop on SCR Emissions

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.

Wiers Fleet Partners can help you understand the requirements as well as maintain your SCR systems. With over 50 years of experience dedicated to understanding the technology and regulations required to operate a diesel fleet, our team can take the pressure off you so you can focus on what you do best – running your trucking business. Count on the certified and professional team at Wiers for:

SCR technology is a proven way for you to get your diesel fleet into compliance with the EPA’s regulations as well as increasing fuel efficiency and reducing your fleet’s environmental impact. Another benefit of tapping into the benefits of the SCR systems is that it will not require any additional driver training, as drivers need only to read the DEF gauge and fill the tank with high-quality fluids.
