Faurecia to equip 20 000 Seoul City buses and trucks with its breakthrough Amminex technology
Amminex, a Danish technology company acquired by Faurecia in 2016, is the only supplier able to propose this breakthrough technology called ASDS™ (Ammonia Storage and Delivery System). ASDS™ is a new solution for NOx reduction which has been proven to reduce NOx emissions by as much as 99 percent. It has been tested in real driving conditions over 30 million of kilometers and has saved a massive 360 tons of NOx. The alternative, AdBlue®, reduces a significantly lower amount of NOx in the same city driving conditions.
ASDS™ replaces diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) or AdBlue® with a lighter, high-efficiency system which works particularly well at low engine temperatures. It is thus well adapted to slow, urban driving conditions and for city vehicles such as buses and commercial delivery vehicles.
In addition to providing the NOx reduction system, Amminex also offers a real-time monitoring of the emissions of each vehicle equipped. This provides cities with data to manage their fleet and the recharging of the cartridges. In order to support this project, Faurecia will also set up in South Korea a cartridge refilling station for recharging the cartridges and a distribution network.
