What Kind of Emissions are Produced by Diesel Truck Exhaust Systems

Diesel truck exhaust systems naturally produce carbon monoxide, which is a very dangerous gas that can harm the environment as well as living organisms. In addition to carbon monoxide, the diesel engine can emit gaseous hydrocarbons as well as liquid hydrocarbon particles. Nitrogen oxides are also commonly found in diesel exhaust emissions.

By using a diesel oxidation catalyst, you can reduce or eliminate many of these emissions. The catalyst works to oxidize all of these things that come out of the diesel exhaust system and lower the overall negative impact on the environment.
