Yes Sandia researchers, group discovered the way to eliminate soot and NO from diesel exhaust using a major injector nozzle redesign. It is so good, no external controls. EGR, DPF, DEF etc... are needed. I read about it 2 years ago.You may be right, but I believe it would go a long way in keeping ones self "off the radar" so to speak.
It's all very frustrating. Consider this. Within a year or 3 there will no longer be external emissions on many diesel engines. They have the technology and the engines are proving it can be done, while meeting EPA standards. Within a decade the era of external EGR pickups will be viewed as bad vehicles to buy altogether. Basically any 6.7 Dodge will be viewed as a red headed step child, who would want to deal with those problems?
Where could we have gotten had the industry focused the billions spent on R&D for a tailpipe test, instead on increasing effeciency? "Footprint" is so much bigger than a tailpipe. And diesel road truck engines, all of them, is such a miniscule contributor to the "problem". It's all very frustrating.
OF COURSE the GREEN GOONS still wont like it because they consider co2 a poisonous gas, and they want all IC engines eliminated. They will happily take away your truck, car, boat, without remorse. They also do not want so many people driving around using up energy. One goal of theirs is to make energy prices skyrocket so fewer folk can do that. They also dont like cows and are promoting BUG burgers now.
Diesel engines without soot, that's the promise of a new fuel-injection design (yahoo.com)
