Episode 6: Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs), Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCRs) for post-2007 medium to heavy-duty trucks and buses have created a lot of controversies.
On the one side of the argument governments, regulators, environmental groups, and individual people want to see more technology introduced to reduce or even one-day eliminate emissions.
Fleets and owner/operators need to be profitable and assert that this technology has made it so that they can’t make enough money to be profitable. The very people who are opposing the trucking industry rely on it every day for the energy they use and to transport the goods that they rely on to live the lifestyle they enjoy.
It seems like an intractable problem and heavy-duty parts suppliers and repair facilities are caught in the middle.
Today’s guest is Dave Jerman of RoadWarrior, a manufacturer of Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs), Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCRs) says that with proper maintenance and a little bit of education these systems are efficient and will not impede the fleets and owner/operators from being able to make money.
