We continue our discussion around reducing air pollution through stricter diesel engine emission standards and techniques. In this Technical Bulletin - the second of a two-part series – we examine the intricacies of appropriate lubricant viscosity as well as the performance criteria of a range of additives and how they contribute to the war against harmful emissions, or not.
In Technical Bulletin 72, we looked at the various diesel emissions produced, the laws governing them, and the technologies utilised to limit these emissions in mitigation of green-house gases and the pursuit of better air quality. Now, we look at how all these developments will change the appetite of the diesel engine.
Technical Bulletin 73 is only available in the digital version. You can download it for free here.
