HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT
RTA and Mercedes-Benz aim to reduce public bus pollution
- Published: March 1, 2008
- Dubai Road Transport Authority (RTA) has begun a four-month trial using 10 Mercedes-Benz buses fitted with the automotive leader's Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Bluetec technology which 'cleans' exhaust gases, so that fewer pollutants are emitted. The test will identify how much nitrogen oxide emissions can be reduced and fuel economy improved using a Mercedes-Benz bus fitted with a diesel engine built to meet Euro 4 emission standards.
