SCR technology is an effective response to the regulatory requirements limiting emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from diesel vehicles. Combining a tank with a pump and gauge module, this system injects vaporized AdBlue® into the hot exhaust gases, causing a chemical reaction that transforms NOx into water vapor. Plastic Omnium has developed a range of SCR systems to meet the needs of all types of vehicles, from the smallest European city car to the largest American pickup truck.
More customization and communication thanks to the signature lighting system and integrated functions. Plastic Omnium designs systems that open the way for the autonomous, connected car of the future. Smart Bumper – a pillar of our innovation strategy. For the autonomous, connected car, Plastic Omnium is developing innovations in complex rear-end modules that integrate radars, sensors and signature lighting. Our Smart Tailgates offer greater value-added and onboard intelligence.
In response to the autonomous, connected and low-carbon car revolution, Plastic Omnium, a market leader in its technology sectors, constantly reinforces its capacity for innovation. The Group works in Open Innovation mode with a whole ecosystem of startups, major technology universities and engineering schools, overseen by the Group’s CASA (Committee for Automotive Strategic Analysis), which brings together internal and external experts. Scientific and technical partnerships are regularly established with the most successful organizations.
