HJS launch Retrofit SCR Technology for Light Commercial Vehicles enabling operators to upgrade van and minibus emissions to meet Euro VI Levels
Clean Air Zones are being introduced across the UK aimed at targeting air quality issues to improve public health. Clean Air Zones aim to reduce all types of air pollution, including nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter.
The UK’s most immediate air quality challenge is to bring roadside concentrations of Nitrogen Oxides within legal limits in the shortest possible time. This is being implemented through the ‘National Air Quality Plan’ which requires the majority of vehicles travelling within the zones to meet exhaust emission standards for Nox and PM or pay a daily charge. If a vehicle does not meet the required standards and the daily charge is not paid, a Penalty Notice Charge will be issued to the operator/owner.
These tighter new emission standards require all diesel powered vans and minibuses to comply with Euro VI emission standards in order to operate freely within these zones – this is where HJS Emission Technology can help!
HJS have developed a retrofit SCR® exhaust system that offers fleet managers and vehicle operators an extremely cost-effective upgrade solution which enables them to comply with Euro VI emission standards at the fraction of the cost of replacement vehicles.
The retrofit HJS SCR system offers ULEZ/LEZ and CAZ compliance for a large range of Euro V Light Commercial chassis applications including the Ford Transit, Mercedes Sprinter, Vito, Volkswagen Crafter, T5, Vauxhall Movano and Renault Master plus others.
Mark Cooper, HJS UK said “HJS have already retrofitted hundreds of UK buses with SCRT technology upgrading emissions to Euro VI standards. The cost of replacing fleet is a huge expense and HJS can upgrade vehicles at the fraction of the cost of buying a replacement vehicle. The van market is a new exciting business area for us here in the UK and we are ahead of our competitors in this market!”
Euro V light commercial vehicles are already equipped with a DPF system for the reduction of Particulate Matter and this element of the exhaust system is retained. The SCR® system supplied by HJS consists of an additional underfloor catalyst, an Adblue tank, engine sensors and an independent control unit. The SCR system operates by injecting an Ammonia based solution (Adblue) directly into the exhaust gas stream which mixes with the dirty exhaust gases converting Nitrogen Dioxide emissions into harmless water and Nitrogen.
The system is manufactured to the highest German quality standards and will be certified imminently for these applications in order to meet all of the requirements set out by the Energy Savings Trust’s ‘Clean Vehicle Retrofit Accreditation Scheme (CVRAS) and the ULEZ in London.
Our specialist team have over 30 years experience in the manufacturing and development of exhaust after-treatment systems. SCR® technology has been installed to thousands of vehicles worldwide helping to reduce harmful emissions in towns and cities.
