In an partnership agreement announced September 21, Mansfield Oil Company and Yara International are combining forces to provide North American fleets with a diesel engine exhaust system that meets 2010 Clean Air Act standards. Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) allows diesel engines to reduce harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions while also enjoying a 5% mileage boost.
In addition to pioneering NOx abatement around the world, Yara is also a leading DEF producer, commercialized under the Air1 brand.
The combined DEF offering from Mansfield Oil and Yara will help transportation companies meet Environmental Protection Agency mandates while also improving fuel efficiency and mileage. According to engine manufacturers, SCR (selective catalytic reduction) combined with DEF improves overall fuel economy by approximately 5% compared with competing technologies, and achieves NOx reductions in excess of 90%. Air1 is also guaranteed to meet ISO 22241 guidelines and is certified by the American Petroleum Institute (API).
Mansfield’s DeliveryOne network is already poised to supply Air1 in every major local market, according to Doug Haugh, executive vice-president at Mansfield Oil. The Denver CO national service center refers callers to their local service center.
Mansfield and Yara have set up a toll-free help line for fleet operators, owners, and managers: 877-810-4DEF (333).
