ETI’s Chief Technology Officer Chris Thorne presents “Transportation: Delivering the High Efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Project” at The Engineer “Collaborate to Innovate” conference.
ETI runs a Heavy Duty Vehicle (HDV) Programmeto develop and demonstrate de-carbonization technologies in on-highway and off-highway vehicles as well as marine vessels. The Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) project was one project within the HDV programme portfolio
Targeted a 3-4% fuel efficiency benefit and hence green house gas benefit from this project whilst exceeding emissions standards
SCR fitted to every truck and large off-highway machine sold in the EU and many newer cars
ETI requested a SCR system capable of achieving a 98% reduction in NOx whilst not exceeding the space requirement and delivering a superior cost to own to the end use
SCR technology must be applicable across a range of vehicle types and usage cycles
Light usage vehicles and machines are the most challenging
Lots of developmental solutions –little science based engineering.
Achieved project objectives(3-4% GHG benefit at acceptable cost and package size) – applicable to any diesel engine!
