Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) engineers have developed the next generation of clean diesel engine technology to reduce hazardous nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide emissions. This ground-breaking development also simultaneously reduces fuel consumption, so it’s a win-win advancement for the future.
SwRI teamed up with regulatory agencies, vehicle manufacturers and suppliers to merge “engine modifications with integrated after-treatment technology and control strategies to reach near-zero emissions levels.” This revolutionary technology was intended for the California Air Resources Board (CARB), a state organization dedicated to fighting air pollution.

In 2024, The State of California reportedly plans to enact tighter emissions standards that will require that heavy-duty engines produce less pollutants. With its systematic approach, SwRI engineers adhered to CARB’s strict emissions goals to reduce NOx by 90% along with the lowering of dangerous carbon dioxide emissions.
