Diesel Exhaust Fluid in railway trains
Diesel Exhaust Fluid for Trains
Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) allows the reduction of nitrogen oxides emissions (NOx) in diesel locomotives that are equipped with SCR systems. Several engine manufacturers; such as Siemens, Alstom and Bombardier, have chosen this technology for their new models. Some train operators in Europe have responded early to local or national legislation on NOx limits for trains and are already using Diesel Exhaust Fluid.
This calculation is based on a train that runs approximately 800 kilometers per day, transporting about 400,000 passengers annually.
Yara has developed its knowledge and expertise in the Diesel Exhaust Fluid market since 2004, so is able to bring this information, and its Diesel Exhaust Fluid in trains experience to other train operators as they begin to operate SCR diesel engines.
