Flat Rock, Mich. – Bosch says it has pioneered an emissions reduction technology that can cut NOx emissions to 10% of levels seen with current diesel-powered cars, and without adding components. Not only that, the company says the technology can be scaled up for use in medium- and heavy-duty diesel engines.
The supplier based in Stuttgart, Germany, unveiled the technology in April and offered further details during a North American press event this week.
Alex Freitag, director of engineering with Bosch’s powertrain solutions group, said the new approach to NOx emissions will keep diesel engines in the game for years to come without adding significant costs to the vehicle.
"The value proposition of the diesel engine is maintained with a minimal impact on fuel economy," he said.
