Development Exhaust Aftertreatment


Today, the reduction of particulate emissions represents a great challenge for reducing the emissions of diesel vehicles. Therefore, in addition to engine modifications, exhaust gas aftertreatment is of particular importance. Although it is possible to reduce visible smoke by means of engine modifications, soot particles are still emitted by the engine. Only modern filter systems allow these emissions to be significantly reduced. Silicon-bonded silicon carbide particulate filters play an important role in this application because they provide the necessary flexibility in terms of cell density and porosity for the development engineers to meet the challenging emission targets of the future.
