The article discusses the performance of the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology in the demonstration fleet of truck company, Hino. The technology reduces diesel fluid (DEF) consumption of up to 2,000 mpg in addition to meeting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2010 emission requirements. New Hino trucks with SCR will meet all EPA 2010 emissions standards. The position and location of the SCR along with the DPR tank is under the passenger entry on all 2010-compliant Hino models.
