The article reports on the plan of executives from truck and engine manufacturers, diesel exhaust fluid producers, fuel retailers, distributors and dispensing equipment suppliers in the U.S. to introduce Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology in diesel-powered vehicles. Key to the planned introduction is the development of a distribution and retail infrastructure to support the availability of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), a fluid that enables SCR systems in vehicles to operate.
