New Eminox SCRT® emissions equipment gets sneak preview

CV Show, Stand No. 321, Hall 17

Eminox will be displaying its new SCRT® exhaust emissions equipment at this year's CV Show. The product, which is undergoing trials throughout Europe, is due for official launch later this year, so this will be a sneak preview.

Also on show at the Eminox stand, (No 321, Hall 17) will be the core product - the Continuously Regenerating Trap (CRT®), and a selection of traditional stainless steel exhausts.

CRT® eliminates virtually 90 per cent of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and particulate matter present in diesel engine emissions. The new technology, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), reduces emissions of the fourth major pollutant - Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) - by around 80 per cent. The new Selective Catalytic Reduction Trap (SCRT®) encapsulates both of these technologies, and enables operators to meet the requirements of both Euro 4 and 5.

Taking centre-stage on the stand will be a new Mercedes Axor truck, belonging to Tesco, which has been fitted with CRT®. Additionally there will be a number of demo units on display including four SCRT® units, three CRT® units, vertical stacks and a spark arrestor.

While SCRT® is the main focus on the Eminox stand, the company will also be discussing how recent UK Government policy is impacting on the installation of exhaust emissions equipment on trucks and buses in the UK.

As of 1st April 2005, the Government is proposing that no Energy Saving Trust grants will be released without EU approval.
