Keeping Emissions Down With the Euro 6 Standard

In the ever-advancing technological landscape, there is a serious niche for technology which will enable us to control even the most rudimentary, fundamental aspects of our lives, such as the quality of the air surrounding us.

One way in which we as a nation of consumers and producers can do this is through advances in modern vehicle engines which allow for lower emissions. Most vehicle engines produce high levels of gases and other substances that are damaging to the environment.There are various ways in which modern engines are able to produce lower emissions and, as such, have a lesser impact on the environment.

At Brown Recycling, we are proud to use the most modern vehicle engines which comply to the most recent emission legislation – Euro 6 – on all our waste trucks and other vehicles. Here, we explain a little more about what makes these engines so much better for the environment than its predecessors and other, older engines.

What is Euro 6?

The latest diesel engine emission laws as provided by the Government which have been driven by the European Commission to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Vehicles adhering to the Euro 6 EU legislation are manufactured to ensure their lower emissions of harmful exhaust emissions including:

  • Nitrogen oxide (NOx)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Hydrocarbons (THC and NMHC)
  • Particulate matter (PM)

By reducing these emissions, there is a knock-on effect both for individual vehicles and the environment as a whole. This is due to improved fuel economy and subsequent lowered carbon dioxide emissions; both of which are extremely positive aspects of having legislation like this in place.

By adhering to this legislation, modern vehicles which do so are leaps and bounds ahead of their predecessors; vehicles which, though safe in their emission production levels and perfectly legal to be driven on the roads, are harmful to the environment.

Here at Brown Recycling, we understand about the effects of vehicle emissions, which is why we use the most modern vehicle engines.
