Over recent years, climate change has been a big concern in the UK. Exhaust emissions from road transport contributed to 21% of UK greenhouse gas emissions (GHG emissions) in 2017, according to Office for National Statistics - UK Environmental Accounts.
Emissions regulations are becoming increasingly strict to combat the amount of GHG emissions emitted from road transport. Car manufacturers are having to make adaptations to the designs of their vehicles to meet the stringent limits.
One method of reducing exhaust emissions is the use of after-treatment devices. The majority of modern diesel vehicles are designed to incorporate an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system. But, what is an EGR...?
An EGR valve is definitely a positive addition to vehicles in terms of reducing harmful NOx emissions, despite their expensive repair costs. If you think you're experiencing a faulty EGR valve you can book in for a free vehicle health check at your local Evans Halshaw retailer.
