Top 10 Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) stories of 2012

Christopher Goodfellow - 2 January 2013

The most read news stories of 2012 focused on Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) pricing and Navistar's decision to use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which requires DEF, from early 2013.

Navistar was the only truck manufacturer not to use SCR technology in its Class 8 vehicles from the initial implementation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 2010 emissions standards; instead the manufacturer relied on emissions credits accrued in previous years.

In October 2011, Integer Research launched DEF Tracker, a monthly DEF price reference service. Highlights from the publication are posted to every month and more information about the publication can be viewed on the company's home page.
