VW’s Clean Diesel Engines

Administrator posted this 03 February 2020

Volkswagen's TDI Diesel engines become cleaner as never before. Recall that in 2015, a scandal broke out concerning the fact that the company's diesel engine emissions were in fact much higher than those during the tests on the profile of the NEDC. The company acknowledged that it had underestimated emissions from car sales in the United States and Europe. In 2017, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) found that Volkswagen had misled the bank about the car company's use of emissions cheating software, in a scandal that has become known as Dieselgate. The consequences stretch to 2019, for example, in March, the company received a lawsuit from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

However, the company did not abandon diesel engines but decided to upgrade them. The company is developing a branch of electric cars but does not plan to abandon fuel cars. So, the VW recently introduced the all-new EA 288 EVO diesel engine with new Twin-Dosing Technology. First of all, the system is equipped with two catalytic converters. What is more, each of them has Ammonia injection system. Ammonia, in its turn, will cut down nitrogen emissions.

The new Twin-Dosing Technology will make diesel engines cleaner by a reduction of 80% of emissions. The VW believes the new EA288 EVO engine will give customers all the benefits that past TDI engines did, but now without harmful emissions.
