New truck engine manufactures will comply with the new emission standards imposed by the EPA that will come into effect January 1, 2010. Under the new regulations, most engine manufacturers have chosen the Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system as the most efficient way to meet these standards. DEF the operating fluid for SCR is a non-toxic solution that transforms harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from heavy-duty diesel-powered vehicles into harmless water vapor and nitrogen. According to engine manufacturers, SCR combined with DEF improves overall fuel economy by approximately 5% and achieves NOx reductions in excess of 90%. Air1 is guaranteed to meet ISO 22241 guidelines and is Certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API).
