IncWell's partner seeks antifreeze technologies for urea for usage in selective catalytic reduction systems for diesel engines.
In diesel engines, the formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in exhaust is controlled by the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The SCR system injects a solution of, roughly, 2/3 water and 1/3 urea (diesel exhaust fluid or DEF) into the exhaust stream. Once the water evaporates, the urea decomposes into ammonia which then catalyses the NOx into water and nitrogen.
With the implementation of emission requirements like RDE (Real Drive Emissions), it is necessary for the urea injection system to function in real-world driving conditions, such as freezing temperatures.
Currently, the DEF is kept liquid using a heating device installed in the fuel tank.
IncWell's partner seeks innovative new antifreeze methods for the DEF.
