The article presents information on a study showing that selective catalyst reduction (SCR) is preferred more as a purchase consideration than exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) in complying with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) 2010 emissions standards for heavy-duty diesel engines. The study indicates that the high fuel efficiency derived from SCR is a major factor for the preference.
