As Large Companies Are Aware In 2021 ALL Vehicles Entering Manchester City Centre And Surrounding Areas Like Eccles, Swinton, Tameside, Worsley And Many More Small Towns Will Need To Meet Certain Regulations. The Local Authorities Have Put Together A Few Guide Lines. The Main One All Vehicles Must Meet Euro 6 Emissions. Our Head Mechanic Already Having Great Knowledge And Experience In Emissions Working Alongside Tameside Council To Bring All Hackney Carriage Vehicles( Black Cabs) To Meet Euro 5 Emissions Back In 2005. Our Mechanical Engineers Are Going To Submit A Euro 6 Emission Conversion Kit Document For Approval . The Conversion Kit Will Bring All Compatible Vehicle Emissions Down To Meet Euro 6 Emissions And Manchester City Council Guide Line. The Kit Will Cost In The Excess Of £2000. The Kit Will Consist Of 2 Catalyst Converters One With A DPF And The Other With A Ad Blue Injector System And A Modified Smart ECU To Control It All. All Local Transport Companies Will Be Affected In These Areas. Taxi Companies Like Swinton Travel, 1010 Taxi,Uber And Main Line Will Also Have To Comply With The Ruling. All Our Minibuses And Minicoaches Running In And Out Of Manchester And The Affected Areas
What is AdBlue?
AdBlue® is a registered trademark of the Verband der Automobilindustrie e.V. (VDA). (www.vda.de) for AUS32 (Aqueous Urea Solution 32%), it is also often referred to as ERS (Emission Reduction Solution) or DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid).
AdBlue is a high purity solution used by many modern diesel engines in conjunction with a Selective Catalytic Reducer (SCR) which significantly reduces harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from the vehicle’s exhaust.
AdBlue never comes into contact with the fuel, it is a common misconception that it is an additive.
A modern diesel engine operating with AdBlue produces less harmful emissions than its petrol equivalent.
How does it work?
AdBlue is carried on board the vehicle in its own separate storage tank. It is injected into the exhaust gases as a post combustion process through an SCR where the aqueous urea vaporises and decomposes to form ammonia and carbon dioxide, these gases then break the harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions down into nitrogen and water.
Requirements for the reduction of all harmful emissions including NOx produced by diesel engines is defined within European Union directives and a series of staggered European emission standards are in place to continually improve air quality by reducing harmful emissions. Initial targets for emission reduction were aimed at Public Transport and the Commercial Sector (HGV’s) but recent legislation now influences smaller vehicles with diesel engines including cars and vans both within the commercial and public sectors.
