Diesel : clean ?

Why must diesel fuel tanks comply with pollution standards ?

Eliminatig NOx emitted during the combustion of diesel fuel by diesel cars is a difficult process that concerns automakers. Indeed, compliance with environmental regulations in the country where their diesel models are commercialised is a recurring issue.  Since 2012, the diesel exhaust gases are classified as “carcinogenic” by the WHO.

What do manufacturers do to comply with the regulation on diesel?

Mercedes-Benz models were the first to use a technology based on the use of AdBlue® to eliminate harmful particles (NOx) at the output of the engine. This technology, called Bluetec, does not affect the diesel consumption or the power of the engine, but it requires a separate AdBlue® tank; A reservoir that must be filled periodically.

Volkswagen has invested millions to develop a NOx trap instead. The trap absorbs nitrous oxide and nitrogen dioxide like a sponge. Once the trap is full, the system can inject a dose of fuel before exhaust gases are released.  The reaction between the fuel and the NOx gives rise to non-polluting substances.

With the hardening of the standard, a large majority of manufacturers have begun to use AdBlue® in order to feed the SCR system which is proven to be the most efficient solution in terms of the reduction of nitrogen oxides.
