Diesel Exhaust Fluid Houston – will older engines need to be retrofitted?

For now, all we know is that only EPA 2010 commercial and consumer vehicles equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology will use Diesel Exhaust Fluid.   Diesel Exhaust Fluid, also called DEF, is a solution made up of purified water and 32.5 percent automotive-grade urea that is used as a carrying agent for the ammonia needed to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from vehicles into nitrogen, water and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Diesel Exhaust Fluid is monitored for quality and certified by the American Petroleum Institute, ensuring that Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a stable, non-toxic, odorless and completely safe solution. The urea used for Diesel Exhaust Fluid is automotive-grade. Urea in additional forms is widely distributed for many other industrial and agricultural needs, including emissions control at public utilities and power plants.

BP’s Gulf Oil Spill: One Ship Captain’s Invention to Battle Tar Balls

I found this to be such an interesting article from the perspective of a lack of a back up plan should the inevitable occur, and indeed it has occured.  We have heard the stories about trying out every available solution, and creating new ones.  Even actor Kevin Costner has failed to truly grab BP’s attention.

“It’s a sign that either the resistance to ideas from (gasp!) the general public has waned or the feds and BP have finally gotten their collective acts together and have more people vetting the thousands of suggestions that are already in the pipeline. It also highlights the sad fact about this ongoing leak: At day 76, the feds and BP are still looking for solutions.”

HORD (Heavy Oil Recovery Device) seems to be the latest effort in this crisis.  The unfortunate is that this device didn’t exist prior to the Gulf oil spill. And there are probably at least a few more of these inventions we they could have used, back when BP was submitting its oil spill response plan.

TransLiquid Technologies is keeping a close eye on the developments of this new effort; we hope HORD does not disappoint.

Your thoughts on the following: Not having the experience of an oil spill of this magnitude, could BP have seen this in their oil spill response plan and have a solution ready to deploy?
