BELLEVUE, Wash. — PACCAR has announced it has joined the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) camp, for its own EPA2010 engines.
The company said in its most recent financial statement that PACCAR engines will use SCR in combination with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Volvo and Daimler Trucks have also announced they’ll be using SCR and Cummins will use the urea-based solution on its medium-duty engines. On the heavy-duty side, Cummins has announced it can meet EPA2010 standards without using SCR, and most recently International made a similar announcement.
“The combination of SCR and EGR will provide PACCAR customers a highly efficient solution to meet the rigorous 2010 emission requirements. PACCAR’s world-class vehicles have successfully operated SCR emission systems in Europe for several years,” said Craig Brewster, PACCAR assistant vice-president. “PACCAR is working with SCR distributors to ensure a nationwide infrastructure is in place to serve our customers. PACCAR premium-quality engines will be offered to our customers to complement the engines available from our existing suppliers in North America in 2010.”
