One step closer to meeting the stringent emissions standards required for 2010, Navistar unveiled its 2010 MaxxForce 13-liter Advanced EGR engine at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas NV recently.
“Our strategy of 2010 emissions compliance through the use of an EGR-only solution is on track,” said Jim Hebe, Navistar senior vice president, North American sales operations. “Through our lineup of MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines, we're providing customers with a simple and straightforward solution that places the burden of emissions compliance on the manufacturer, not the customer.”
To meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2010 emissions standards for on-highway diesel engines, MaxxForce Advanced EGR engines will use proven technologies such as advanced fuel injection, air management, electronic controls, and proprietary combustion technology.
Other major truck and engine manufacturers are choosing to meet 2010 emissions through Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), which requires an additional operating chemical, called urea, as well as aftertreatment equipment that will add hundreds of pounds to each vehicle.
Navistar's EGR approach will not require use of urea or the addition of heavy on-vehicle urea storage tanks, converters, heaters, and additional electronics required by SCR systems.
