With growing concerns about NOx and particulate matter (PM) emissions from diesel engines, stricter regulations are being implemented which require advanced emission control technology. This paper discusses the combination of a diesel particle filter system (DPF) with a low pressure exhaust gas re-circulation (EGR) system to provide four way emission control of NOx, PM, CO and HC from existing heavy duty diesel engines.

The combined EGR-DPF system has been used in Europe over the past 4 years, with over 1200 systems installed on urban buses and other on-road applications. This system has shown 40-60% NOx reduction in addition to >90% CO, HC and PM reductions. Recently, several field trial programs have been initiated to evaluate the performance and durability of this EGR-DPF system under US operational conditions. These include retrofit applications on urban buses and on construction trucks. FTP tests on engine dynamometer have demonstrated 48 – 58% NOx reductions with these systems while chassis dynamometer tests have shown 50-60% NOx reductions. Simultaneously, >90% CO, HC and PM reductions were also observed in these tests.

In this paper, this combined EGR-DPF system is discussed in detail. In addition, the operational and the emissions testing data from the combined EGR-DPF equipped vehicles are also presented.

The technology of STT of Sundsvall to reduce nitrogen oxides in diesel exhausts, is now undergoing its first big test - in California. California is renowned for having the toughest regulations in the world today for exhaust emissions, and is preparing even more stringent legislation. In April this year, STT signed a co-operation agreement with the US-based Engelhard Corporation, which specialises in advanced filter technology. That company is one of the world`s biggest suppliers of catalysts and systems to reduce pollution from combustion engines. This co-operation opens up a huge market for STT.

The environmental problems of diesel are high on the agenda these days. Political measures include raising taxes on diesel to reduce its use, thereby reducing environmental problems. The STT Holding AB Group in Sundsvall has made a technological breakthrough that makes it possible to significantly reduce harmful emissions from heavy diesel vehicles. STT is aiming at a listing on the stock exchange, and some of the biggest names in Swedish industry have decided to become shareholders in the company.
