PORTLAND, Ore. — Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) says it has received orders for more than 10,000 trucks equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology.
SCR is an exhaust aftertreatment system that brings the vehicles in compliance with stringent EPA2010 emissions standards.
The system practically eliminates NOx emissions and the manufacturer says it also improves fuel economy by up to 5% compared to previous designs. Every new Freightliner Cascadia, Coronado and M2 Business Class vehicle is now available with either Detroit Diesel’s or Cummins’ SCR emissions system.
“SCR is the industry’s premier solution for meeting the 2010 emission requirements, and our customers are already benefitting from the technology,” said David Hames, general manager, marketing and strategy for Daimler Trucks North America. “In reaching the 10,000 order milestone, our customers and the industry have shown that SCR is the best choice for 2010.”
