Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) Forum USA 2011 (Oct. 17)

The 4th Diesel Exhaust Fluid Forum serves a maturing DEF market in 2011. Gone are the days when potential investors sought evidence that there will be a viable market for DEF at all.#]

A maturing market

Consumption of DEF in the heavy-duty market has grown by 35% between Q1 and Q2 2011. But the rate of expansion in different markets is not smooth; some segments are growing quickly, or set to grow when certain structural conditions are met (e.g. the introduction of new emissions regulations) while other markets are consolidating and becoming more and more price sensitive.

Where are the opportunities?

There’s no simple answer: many factors come into play.

For example, non-road equipment for agriculture, mining and construction, marine, locomotive and port drayage is increasingly dependent on SCR aftertreatment to meet stricter EPA and IMO NOX and PM emissions rules. These markets do not follow the pattern of heavy-duty on-highway DEF distribution and therefore new infrastructure needs to be established to meet customer demand away from the major interstate arterial routes.

The format requirements for DEF storage and filling are changing too. A market that was dominated by jugs and totes just two years ago is now expected to dispense DEF from integrated fuel islands, bulk retail storage, IBC totes and drums. Customers need diversified dispensing equipment to meet the complex demands of cost-sensitive transport applications.

Distributors that are not flexible and responsive to these needs will lose market share to nimbler competitors.

The DEF Forum will give you the business intelligence and insights needed to develop your competitive strategy.

Diesel Emissions Conference USA 2011 (Oct. 18 – 19)

The Diesel Emissions Conference covers commercial and technological developments for heavy duty on-road, medium duty, vocational and non-road diesel powertrain and aftertreatment systems.

New emissions regulations and undeniably tough market conditions are changing the requirement for powertrain systems, aftertreatment devices, sensors and supporting equipment across many industry sectors.

Integer has identified three main industry trends that will change the diesel equipment market in the next 5 years:

1. Greenhouse Gas Regulations and Fuel Efficiency

Greenhouse gas regulations and fuel efficiency will impact on-road heavy duty diesel vehicles in the United States from 2014 and again in 2018, as new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Heavy-Duty National Program regulations take effect.

2. On Board Diagnostics (OBD)

Truck makers need to certify all engines on highway vehicles over 14,000 pounds in line with the EPA’s on board diagnostics rules from 2013. These rules will naturally progress from on-road to non-road vehicles in the near future along with advanced emissions control systems being introduced under Tier 4 Final rules for the non-road sector.

3. Alternative Fuels and Hybrid Propulsion Systems

Third and by no means least, the advent of viable alternative fuels and hybrid propulsion systems heralds a new era in on-road and non-road vehicle design. Diesel/electric hybrids, compressed and liquid natural gas engines – and even all-electric and fuel-cell powered vehicles – are all in a position to take market share from diesel equipment manufacturers.

The Diesel Emissions Conference will offer in depth coverage of these key issues making it crucial for you to attend as a senior decision maker within the industry.

Offsetting CO2 emissions, supported by Wema


We are pleased to announce Wema as the environmental sponsor at this year’s event.

Climate change is the most pressing global issue facing us all, with potential for significant community, biodiversity and environmental consequences across the world. To take responsibility for our impact on the climate, Integer in partnership with Wema are offsetting the carbon emissions from our events through ClimateCare.

ClimateCare is an organisation that reduces global greenhouse gas emissions on behalf of companies and individuals. These reductions are made through a range of projects around the world that not only make real reductions in carbon emissions, but also make a difference to people’s lives.
