Pedata RV Center sees changes being made to accommodate recent changes to diesel emissions requirements. Manufacturers are weighing the options that will keep quality standards high for diesel RVs while fulfilling the newly stringent requirements.
The two most common options that are being considered and implemented by RV manufacturers to reduce nitrogen oxides emissions from tail pipes are:
1. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR): SCR was first patented in the US in 1957 and has been under development since that time. It is commonly used by European manufacturers, but hasn’t yet become commonplace in the North American market. This is the most common option for manufacturers who have European ties.
2. Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR): EGR is an option for decreasing nitrogen oxides emissions being explored by many North American RV manufacturers.
Both options seem to be viable options for meeting the 2010 emissions requirements.
Gerard Pedata of Pedata RV Center said, “It seems as if the majority of US RV manufacturers are opting for the EGR method of decreasing nitrogen oxides emissions. While both EGR and SCR are going to offer a solution…the consensus in the US RV market seems to be that the EGR method is simpler.”
