Diesel | Innovation

Since the production of the first diesel truck in 1924, and the first diesel car in 1936, Bosch has been one of the world’s leading providers of diesel technology. The exhaust-gas treatment and dosing system, Denoxtronic, is being used in a larger number of diesel vehicles than ever before. Therefore, it is growing in importance, and thus, potential for the workshop. The system works by injecting an aqueous urea solution known as Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF/AdBlue) into the exhaust stream and, in combination with the SCR catalytic converter, converts harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) into water and nitrogen.

Bosch know-how and growing demand

The most common version of Denoxtronic systems in North America is 3.1 and 2.2. For cars and light commercial vehicles, 3.1 has been available since 2008 and 2.2 for heavy commercial since 2009. Today, Bosch Denoxtronic systems are built into vehicles around the world. An increasing number of vehicle manufacturers are using the Bosch system to ensure that diesel vehicles are compliant with emission limits. Many vehicles with Denoxtronic systems have high mileage. As a result, the demand for services and cost-effective maintenance work is increasing.
