ACCTNovel NOx emission reduction system

The technology

Working at the forefront of NOx reduction technology since 2010, Loughborough experts have developed a novel system that extends the low-temperature operation of AdBlueTM-based SCR systems.

The novel Loughborough system uses waste heat to convert a small volume of AdBlueTM into a new solution that produces the required ammonia even at low temperatures.

The new technology will effectively integrate with existing reduction systems, requiring minimal re-design, and will:

  • dramatically lower total NOx output
  • improve engine and fuel efficiency
  • help to reduce CO2 and particulate matter emissions.

To date, no other technology exists that functions at low temperatures and uses the readily available, industry-standard AdBlueTM.
