There is an economical solution to ensure Euro 5 compliance: BlueTec®. Mercedes-Benz has already made an early decision in favour of the future-proof solution of BlueTec® which is based on SCR (selective catalytic reduction) diesel technology and on higher-efficiency engines which are in turn more economical. Thanks to SCR diesel technology, Mercedes-Benz satisfies Euro emissions standards and reduces exhaust emissions and fuel consumption. The initial investment is paid off more quickly than you might expect.
From October 2009 Actros vehicles with BlueTec® 5 equipment and exhaust silencers for engines from 410 hp to 460 hp engines will be available, and they also comply with the EEV emissions standard.
