Systems Approach to Meeting EPA 2010 Heavy-Duty Emission Standards Using a NOx Adsorber Catalyst and Diesel Particle Filter on a 15L Engine 2004-01-0587

This paper outlines the development and integration of an advanced emission control system with a modern heavy-duty diesel engine for use in a series of catalyst aging tests. The project that is discussed is one of several being conducted under the Department of Energy's Advanced Petroleum-Based Fuels - Diesel Emission Control (APBF-DEC) activity. This government/industry collaboration is examining how systems of advanced fuels, engines, and emission control systems can deliver significantly lower emissions while maintaining or improving vehicle fuel economy. This project is using a Cummins ISX EGR engine (15 L) with a secondary fuel injection system to enable NOx adsorber catalyst regeneration. Development of the strategies for NOx regeneration and sulfur removal as well as integration of the emission control hardware is discussed. Performance of oven aged systems tested over transient and steady-state cycles is summarized.
The strategies developed allow for over 90% reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) over the regulated transient and steady-state test cycles. A steady-state desulfation strategy has been developed to limit catalyst degradation during aging.
