Adding to health protection for students and improved air quality in communities, the All American FE Diesel includes proven selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology.
In the SCR system, nitrous oxide gas is injected with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which reacts with the catalyst. That reaction breaks the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions down into harmless nitrogen and water vapor. These components are a pure and natural part of the air we breathe. The nitrogen and water vapor then pass harmlessly through the tailpipe.
