The report was taken from the recent Diesel Emissions Conference Russia 2012, hosted on the 7 – 8 February 2012, Corinthia hotel, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Leading stakeholders from throughout Russia and Europe, including on- and off-highway vehicle and engine manufacturers, oil companies, and aftertreatment technology specialists, gathered to discuss the measures which need to be taken to successfully reduce diesel vehicle pollutants in Russia. The audience included representatives from GAZ, OAO Kamaz, Daimler and Gazprom Neft.
Dr. Petr Steiner, Hart Energy & IFQC’s Russia & CIS Refining Expert, and a Chairman of the Conference, said: “The high level of attendance at the conference has shown a strength of interest in the diesel emissions area and huge potential for the Russian Federation.
The event has shown that vehicle manufacturers as well as emission legislation are ready to move forward. However, they are held back by unsatisfactory fuel quality (resolvable in the short term) and lack of monitoring and control at all levels (a structural problem that can take years to be resolved).”
The analysis document includes views and case studies on the successful trial and implementation of diesel emissions technologies for on- and off highway vehicles, and the growing potential for an established market for AdBlue – the NOx reducing agent used with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.
