Heavy-Duty Diesel Emission Control Strategy Installation and Maintenance
A verified DPF is required for regulatory credit toward In-use regulations for diesel engines operating in California
Every day, on and off-road diesel engines create air pollutants that can adversely affect human health. CARB requires engine manufacturers to meet strict pollution standards for newer engines. However, fleet owners may need to install a verified diesel emission control strategy to clean up emissions from older, dirtier diesel engines. A diesel emission control strategy is a technology that, if maintained properly, reduces harmful air pollution from diesel engine exhaust before it is emitted into the air. The most common technology used is a diesel particulate filter (DPF), also known as a soot filter or DECS, which substitutes for the original factory muffler. CARB evaluates and approves DPFs to meet specific particulate matter or nitrogen oxide emission reductions.
