ePa emissions Standards 1994 to 2010. Weve come a long way toward truly clean diesel. EPA 2010 standards require engine emissions to meet a NOx level of 0.2g/bhp-hr.

X [ g/bhp-hr ]
the only way to meet EPA 2010 emissions standards
at the tailpipe is by running an engine with selective
catalytic reduction (sCr) technology. You can feel
good about your impact on the environment and
your bottom line using sCr.
Detroit has a reliable, proven solution. its called
bluetec emissions technology. for the first time,
not only can you meet emissions standards, but
you can do so more simply and economically.
bluetec is the experienced solution, already used in
hundreds of thousands of Daimler trucks worldwide.
bluetec allows you to Demand it All.
65 to 1 the pollutants emitted by 65 ePa 2010 trucks is equivalent to the pollutants emitted by just one truck in 1988.
ECONOMYbluEtEC EMissiONs tEChNOlOgY is thE first EMissiONs ADvANCEMENt tO OffEr YOu COst bENEfits. from the beginning, Detroit designed the DD13, DD15, DD15
tC and DD16 engines from the ground up to work seamlessly with bluetec. this allows Detroit to offer you optimized performance under the hood and in your wallet in the form of fuel
savings and improved cost of ownership.
bluEtEC CAN ExtEND thE lifE Of AN ENgiNE. theres no doubt youre wondering how bluetec emissions technology will affect the life of your engine. bluetec is designed to decrease the overall cost of ownership of your engine and your truck. it actually helps Detroit engines achieve more efficient combustion by using fewer exhaust gas recirculations (Egr). this efficiency minimizes heat rejection reducing the stress put on many of the cooling system and internal engine components,
extending their useful life and improving reliability.
bluetec emissions technology also was designed to allow the engine to perform at its peak. by treating exhaust gases outside the engine and using fewer Egrs, Detroit can provide up to 5% better fuel economy* compared to our impressive EPA 2007 engines. One of the major factors contributing to this improvement is that bluetec emissions technology allows the engines diesel particulate filter (DPf) to extend its regeneration intervals. this means using less fuel to burn off the soot the filter collects, saving you money.

BlueTec Air/Exhaust Flow Exhaust leaves the engine then flows through the diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) and then it is mixed with DEF before it passes through the SCR catalyst. Finally, it exits the tailpipe as nitrogen and water.
Detroit engines use a completely integrated emissions system that combines exhaust gas recirculation (Egr), diesel particulate filter (DPf), diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (sCr) to efficiently meet current emissions standards. Exhaust gases are treated downstream of the engine instead of
requiring complex changes to the engine. it does this by injecting a small amount of diesel exhaust fluid (DEf) into the exhaust stream which reacts with the NOx in the sCr catalyst, forming nitrogen and water. the nitrogen and water, safe elements in the air we breathe, are released into the environment.

the components required for bluetec emissions technology include DEf tank, DEf doser, sCr catalyst, aftertreatment control module (ACM) and DEf gauge. Detroit and Daimler engineers have developed several ways to package these components on the truck. Your dealer sales consultant will work with you to determine the optimal packaging solution to fit your needs. the optimal packaging solution depends on the specific truck application, but bluetec offers a packaging advantage with its proprietary 1-box emissions package.
the 1-box emissions package combines the DOC, DPf and sCr catalyst in one simple component. this configuration enables lower exhaust back pressure, which contributes to the fuel economy benefit provided by bluetec technology. this proprietary system also enables these components to be positioned on the vehicle to provide optimal packaging solutions for a wide range of truck configurations.

DEf is a simple, non-toxic and inexpensive pre-mixed fluid composed of two-thirds pure water and one-third automotive-grade urea. As with other
standardized fluids, the American Petroleum institute controls DEf quality through a rigorous testing system.
deF inFraStruCturethe distribution infrastructure for DEf is in place, and it is available in ample supply at cost-effective prices. it comes in various size containers including bulk fill, 275-gallon totes and 2.5-gallon jugs. DEf also is available for purchase at many convenient locations.

With one 23 gallon tank of DEF, a BlueTec-equipped truck could travel from California to Maine and back without refilling the DEF tank. During this trip the truck (with 250 gallon fuel capacity) would need at least four fuel fill-ups.

there is one basic thing to keep in mind when operating a bluetec-equipped truck: watch the DEf gauge to see when its time for a refill.
The gauge indicates the level of DEF in the tank and has a series of alerts when the tank is running low. A driver who ignores a DEF low level warnings will see de-rates and restrictions on the vehicle, but will never be stranded. Just watch the gauge. its that simple!
the deF Gauge is integrated into the diesel Fuel Gauge
DEF FILL OPTIONS
HOme Fill rOad FillDEf is stored on the truck in its own tank located next to the fuel tank on the drivers side. the tanks range in size from six to 23 gallons depending on the trucks applications, which means you can go up to 7,000 miles between fill-ups.*

the on-board diagnostic (ObD) system is designed to keep the engines control module informed of the performance of bluetec. ObD monitors the DEf level in the tank, emissions levels going out the tailpipe, and all of the components of the bluetec emissions system. the DEf tank fill opening is designed to accommodate only a DEf fill nozzle to ensure only DEf is put in this tank. so fill it up when needed. Its that simple.
