“Total fuel economy is very important for our customers, and we have a combination of technology and service offers that will be difficult for our competitors to match,” says Astrid Drewsen, Product Manager for Drivelines, Volvo Trucks.
Improved after-treatment of emissions
For the heavy-duty engine range, the D11, D13 and the upcoming D16, Volvo Trucks has retained its tried and tested catalytic emission control, SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction). SCR has proved to be extremely effective in the after-treatment of emissions and it is also the ideal match for Euro 6 requirements. In addition, Volvo Trucks has improved the catalytic coating of its SCR unit and the AdBlue injection system.
In order to comply with Euro 6, the heat in the exhaust system must be kept at a more or less constant high level. Volvo Trucks is therefore combining its SCR solution with non-cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) in its D11 and D13 Euro 6 engines. The technological solution for the D5 and D8 engines is a combination of cooled EGR system, particulate filter and SCR.
“Our experience from emissions legislation the world over provided the input for our choice of fuel-efficient, cost-effective and less complex engine technology. We are very pleased with our Euro 6 offer, especially since environmental care is one of our core values,” says Astrid Drewsen.
