This is So Exhausting!
Meeting the challenges of new global vehicle emissions standards with active heating and advanced mixing technologies

Meeting the challenges of new global vehicle emissions standards with active heating and advanced mixing technologies

October 20, 2021

Tim and George chat to Jack Riddle and Volker Brichzin from Purem by Eberspaecher about technologies to meet upcoming ultra-low NOx requirements at low-load and idling while meeting packaging, back-pressure and durability requirements – including compact urea mixers for dual dosing, hydrocarbon mixers and electrical heating options – in an environment where OEMs are selecting powertrain options such as stop-start, cylinder deactivation and hybridisation. We discuss the implications of the next round of regulations, which aim to broaden requirements beyond traditional test cycles to ensure compliance across a much wider range of operating conditions. We also discuss opportunities for hydrogen internal combustion engines and the potential aftertreatment requirements with much higher exhaust water content.

Tim and George chat to Dr Tue Johannessen, Head of Maritime Application & Viability at the new Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, and previously CTO of Amminex Emissions Technology. Tue describes product development of a disruptive technology in the early stage of SCR for trucks and cars, promoting fuel efficient solution to a conservative automotive industry. We discuss how car manufacturers reacted to the Dieselgate scandal in 2015, and how this prompted the focus on real-driving emissions and accelerated the shift to electric vehicles. We then move to the challenge of decarbonising the shipping industry through the use of zero or low-carbon fuels such as Blue or Green ammonia using new two-stroke engines.

April 8, 2021

In this episode of the “This is So Exhausting!” Podcast, George and Tim speak to Meenakshi Sundaram, CTO of Amalgamations Components Group. In our second episode focusing on the rapid changes in emissions control in India, we explore where electrification is likely, including on small tractors and agricultural equipment, then turn to key issues for meeting the next emissions standards like thermal management by electrifying engine components, aftertreatment system trends for CEV/Trem V standards in 2024, and future maintenance challenges like DPF cleaning. Finally we get an update on the latest SIAM request to postpone the CAFE (Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency) Phase 2 schedule from 2022 to 2024.

In this episode of the “This is So Exhausting!” Podcast, George and Tim speak to Miron Thoms, Head of Volvo Penta India.

Topics covered include the Covid lockdown in India, improvements in fuel quality, and the implications of the next steps of the complex off-road emissions regulations in India including the introduction of SCR without DOC or DPF in Volvo Penta’s engine range.

We also debate the challenges of moving from mechanical to electronically controlled engines with modern fuel injection, the introduction of BS V for non-road from 2024/25, and the possibility to electrify non-road equipment in India.

March 25, 2021

In this episode of the “This is So Exhausting!” Podcast, George and Tim speak to aftertreatment catalyst and sustainability expert Phil Blakeman about the rapid powertrain changes we are seeing globally in light and heavy vehicles, the issues we need to manage during the energy transition, and the opportunities for companies who are able to offer technologies that meet new OEM and customer needs. We reflect on the incredible achievements of the last two decades, where diesel engines have gone from having just a muffler in the exhaust to advanced but reliable SCR systems with near zero emissions.
