Emissions Reduction Technologies

Engineering today what you’ll need tomorrow.

The efficiency and emissions levels of our engines in industrial applications have now reached a stage that years ago seemed unattainable. The credit is due to the use of innovative technologies, including both internal engine enhancements and exhaust aftertreatment.

The ability to meet new emissions requirements when moving up to a more stringent exhaust gas standard requires more than just knowing how an engine works. Our approach is to successfully integrate the entire powertrain – this ensures that our drive systems deliver more. And consume less fuel.

Emissions Forecast

Increasingly strict emissions limits mean the ideal “zero emissions” target for diesel engines is fast approaching. Over the course of the last 19 years, EU emissions stages have been tightened four times, while EPA Tier regulations have been created to govern industrial engines. EU Stage V amounts to a cut of more than 94% in recommended nitrogen oxide levels. And at 97.8%, suggested reductions in soot particulate emissions have been greater still.

Emissions Certificates

MTU diesel engines are able to meet the widest range of exhaust emissions requirements (up to EU Stage V) thanks to our optimized combustion and cooled exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR). EGR is supported by an efficient and well-balanced exhaust aftertreatment system, consisting of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) technology. Our combined system has also enabled us to comply with other global emissions standards including those in North America, China, Japan and Korea.

Solution for EU Stage V

A combined “all-in-one” package for exhaust gas aftertreatment with SCR, a DPF and an integrated dosing unit provides proven product features for profitable use at the same time as meeting the emissions limits for EU Stage V. A reduction in harmful emissions is therefore achieved together with a reduction in fuel consumption.
No matter where in the world your machines operate, you need a drive package that performs. With our Emission Flex Package and a wide range of emissions certificates, you increase the flexibility in highly regulated markets as well as in countries with no or lower emissions standards – without any adjustment of assembly space.
