NOX Reduction Systems

Course Details

The strict international directives imposed by the administrations oblige the manufacturers to develop diverse and complex technologies to reduce and control the polluting emissions of the exhaust gases. In this course we will study one of the technical solutions to reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxides, through the AdBlue agent. To this end, the compounds derived from combustion in Diesel engines will be analyzed and this course will focus mainly on the reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx), one of the most harmful pollutants for people and the environment. Therefore, the main objectives of this course are the following:

  • Know the aspects that relate combustion to the emissions of the gases produced in it and their effects on the environment and on people.
  • Know the different antipollution regulations and the particularities of each of the
  • Provide the student with the ability to diagnose and repair nitrogen oxides reduction systems with AdBlue agent as well as skills to deal with customers, drivers or car owners.
  • Show the manufacturers that incorporate the AdBlue method and the peculiarities of each one.
  • Other solutions that are not AdBlue to reduce nitrogen oxides.
