Tests have confirmed the environmental performance of the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology developed by PSA Peugeot Citroën.
PSA Peugeot Citroën is pleased to learn that the initial results obtained by the Peugeot 208 and Peugeot 508 in tests organized by the technical committee led by the French Ministry of Ecology – Sustainable Development and Energy comply with regulations and are aligned with homologated data.
These results confirm the effectiveness of the exclusive BlueHDi aftertreatment system, in which SCR technology is positioned upstream of the particulate filter to eliminate up to 90% of the nitrogen oxides (NOx) released by diesel engines and bring NOx emissions down to levels near those of petrol engines. At the same time, diesel engines maintain their advantage of 15% lower CO2 emissions and 20% greater fuel efficiency.
