Eminox
About Eminox
• Eminox was established in 1978
• We employ around 220 people
in 6 countries
• We design and manufacture
exhaust and emission control
systems for heavy duty diesel
engines
• We have supplied approx.
70,000 emission control systems
to date
• Our systems are used across
Europe and further afield for
Air Quality clean up programmes
City Pollution
• Particulate Matter (PM) and Nitrogen
Oxides (NOx) are damaging to health
and the environment
• Many cities across Europe are failing
to meet legal limits for PM and NO2
• There is no safe limit for exposure to
PM (World Health Organisation)
• The link between black carbon (PM)
and global warming is now
internationally recognised
Retrofit
• New vehicles are now manufactured
with technology that reduces their
emissions of PM and NOx
• There are many older buses still in
service – reducing pollution from
these buses can have a major impact
• These can be retrofitted with
emissions reduction systems at a
fraction of the cost of new buses
• With SCRT technology 15 buses can
be upgraded to Euro V for the cost of
1 new bus
SCRT ® Retrofit
Eminox SCRT has been used in
Europe’s largest retrofit programmes
•
Belgium - 247 buses upgraded for
bus operator DeLijn
•
Spain – More than 400 buses
upgraded in Barcelona
•
Sweden – around 300 systems fitted
to meet local traffic emissions
requirements for PM and NOx
•
Edinburgh - 43 Lothian buses
upgraded
•
Oxford – 26 systems fitted
SCRT® System
• Combines two technologies:
CRT® (Continuously Regenerating Trap)
SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction)
• Same technology as used for Euro V,
EEV and Euro VI
• Advanced emissions technology reduces
• particulate matter
• nitrogen oxides
• hydrocarbons
• carbon monoxide

SCRT® System
• Vehicles as old as Euro II can be
upgraded to the latest Euro V
emissions standards
• This requires
71% reduction in NOx
86% reduction in PM
• In independent tests the Eminox
SCRT achieved equivalent
reductions
