kscarbel Posted June 11, 2013 Share Posted June 11, 2013 June 11, 2013The engineer behind the development of Scania’s Euro 6 after-treatment system has been awarded the Professor Ferdinand Porsche Prize for Outstanding Research in Vehicle Engineering.Dr Magnus MackAldener and his team developed the compact after-treatment device that uses oxidation catalysts, particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technologies to remove the nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions from the exhaust gases.The compact size of the after-treatment device is reported to free up chassis space on Scania tractors to allow more room for larger fuel tanks and other equipment.“I'm very proud to be one of the engineers in the international vehicle industry who have been awarded this distinguished prize. It’s recognition of Scania’s prominent position in engine development and the result of successful teamwork, in which I have had the privilege of participating,” MackAldener says.Scania was out of the gates early with Euro 6 engines and have over 1,000 Euro 6 compliant trucks already on European roads.Euro 6 emissions legislation does not come into effect until the end of 2013. Scania engines use a combination of SCR and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to satisfy Euro 6 emissions levels. Scania has been running with this technology since 2011. http://www.scania.com/media/pressreleases/N13016EN.aspx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
