SCR - What Is Selective Catalytic Reduction?

SCR (selective catalytic reduction) is a technology that uses a urea based diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) and a catalytic converter to significantly reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions. SCR is the leading technology being used to meet 2010 emission regulations. SCR Technology will be in used in most new heavy duty commercial vehicles beginning in 2010. This new technology (at least for the USA)...
