Cost-effective compliance with Euro V, lower consumption and extremely low CO2 emissions –these are the advantages of BlueTec® 5, the SCR diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz. BlueTec® 5 is also an excellent solution where the issue of particulate emissions is concerned. No other Euro V technology is as effective at reducing particulate pollutants. The Actros is already optionally available with the even more stringent Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle (EEV)3 emissions standard.
The BlueTec® 5 engines are impressive with their low fuel consumption and particularly low pollutant and particulate emissions. As the exhaust gas leaves the engine, AdBlue is injected into the hot exhaust flow, where it turns into ammonia, which is later required for the chemical reaction in the catalytic converter. There, the nitrogen oxides (NOX) are converted into harmless nitrogen and water.
BlueTec® engines – reliable and low-maintenance: Further advantages of BlueTec® include their great reliability and the particularly long oil change intervals, which in the Actros, for example, contribute to up to 150,000 km and up to 0.5% lower CO2 emissions4 compared with vehicles with maintenance intervals that are half as long.
