Diesel Green Technology

  • Our students attend a bio-diesel fuel seminar each year
  • We assist SDSU with research on the use of bio-diesel fuel in modern diesel engines
  • We teach low emission diesel engines, including diesel particulate filters (DPF), diesel exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems. All of these systems are designed to reduce the amount of hydrocarbon (HC) emissions which contribute to the greenhouse effect and the reduction of oxides of nitrogen (NO and NO2) emissions that contribute to smog formation
  • Our curriculum covers the new method of injecting diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) into the exhaust stream of 2010 truck engines to lower NOx emissions
