Production milestone at Bosch One million Denoxtronic systems for commercial vehicles

Due to increasingly stringent exhaust-gas standards around the world, exhaust-gas treatment based on SCR technology is also increasingly in use in the commercial vehicle segment. At its Hallein plant in Austria, Bosch has now produced its one millionth Denoxtronic exhaust-gas treatment system. In combination with an SCR catalyst (Selective Catalytic Reduction), the AdBlue metering system reduces nitrogen-oxide emissions from a commercial vehicle’s diesel engine by up to 95 percent. The exhaust-gas treatment system also allows the engine to be configured to reduce fuel consumption, with the result that CO2 emissions fall by approximately three percent.
