I have said in the past that given the proper amount of time diesel engine manufacturers would come out with better ways to reduce emissions while making the engine more powerful and efficient similar to how gasoline engine manufacturers did through the 70's, 80's, and 90's. It seems that is coming to fruition with Bosch's new dual SCR system that dramatically reduces NOx and this new invention that came to mind from a simple Bunsen burner doing the same for soot. It seems that the days of diesels DPF's and soot may be numbered. Best of all, it seems that it can be retrofitted to current diesels at little cost and it worked better with renewable diesel fuels.

I wish!
It would be interesting to have some Bosch engineers chime in.

I know Bosch is responsible for great things ... but after spending 30 years replacing outrageously priced parts I hope that someone other than Bosch comes up with the solution.

It can’t happen fast enough as far as I’m concerned.

This kind of thinking and innovation is what’s going to solve our climate/environmental problems, not the “Ban it (everything you’re currently doing) and cram it (my half-baked plan du jour down your throat) nonsense coming from politicians mouths.

Strange. Most of what I hear from politicians in power is "IT AIN'T HAPPENING!"
What I don't understand is person 1 can be driving the car he can afford, maintaining it as well as he can, gets a ticket because of a little smoke. At the same time, person 2, that can afford to drive what he wants, spends more than person 1 makes in 2 years for a truck, then gets on the 'net and brags about modifying the truck so it no longer meets the emission standards.

Maybe the new system could put an end to these non-sense modifications (mostly).

According to the Sandia website, this lab is a government run research facility that started with the Manhattan Project of WWII. So I wouldn’t count out their research just yet.

Well if u drive a gas job, this would never be an issue.....JK guys... anyway yes sounds good. I’m hoping they do something soon. Some of the trucks we have had a lot of money dumped into the emissions.....


A truck, a camper, a few toys, but most importantly a wonderful family.
