MINNEAPOLIS — Donaldson Company Inc. will present strategies and techniques for reducing emissions at the 10th annual Diesel Engine Emission Reduction (DEER) conference.
DEER is a symposium for the diesel engine industry sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. The conference will be held Aug. 29 to Sept. 2 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego, Calif.
Donaldson’s two presentations will review new techniques and strategies for best managing Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration – the process of removing the combustible portion of collected soot from diesel-particulate filters, which reduces harmful emissions.
“The DEER conference is unique for our industry because it invites representatives from a diverse range of sectors related to diesel engines to meet and share essential knowledge and strategies for further improving the economics and environmental impact of diesel engines,” said Ted Angelo, director of emissions product development, Donaldson Company. “The conference attracts some of the best researchers and strategists in the industry with attendees from leading universities, government agencies and diesel-engine manufacturers. This is a unique opportunity to participate in the conference alongside leading experts from around the nation and showcase Donaldson’s new Active Regeneration Diesel Particulate Filter System. This important new system technology will operate where passive DPF systems will not, thus greatly expanding the application of high-efficiency DPFs to a broad range of diesel engine applications.”
The DEER conference focuses on new developments in diesel engine research, advances in the understanding of the combustion process and important studies on the impact of emissions on the environment.
