More power and torque, less consumption and 90 % fewer emissions! With the new engine in the 600 SCR we have achieved several goals simultaneously: a major boost in performance thanks to the improved Mercedes engine, greater power development thanks to a new power train, higher torque at lower engine speeds, less consumption and not least the up to 90 % reduction in CO2 emissions.
SCR - Selective Catalytic Reduction
The SCR technology primarily reduces the nitrogen oxide (NOX) in the exhaust gases. However, this largely suppresses unwanted side reactions (e.g. the oxidisation of sulphur oxide into sulphur trioxide). This occurs because of the "AdBlue®", an ammonia solution in a separate tank, which is mixed with the exhaust gases. The chemical reaction converts the ammonia and nitrogen oxide into harmless nitrogen and water. The emission of fine dust particles is also substantially reduced by this process.
Compliant with the new Tier 4i exhaust regulations
The Mercedes-Benz OM 460 LA engine with SCR technology reduces the emission of fuel gases - particularly nitrogen oxide - and complies with the Tier 4i exhaust emission regulations that have been in place since 2011.
