BMW BluePerformance Technologies reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) produced by the diesel engine to a minimum. This does not affect the actual combustion process, so the engine’s high level of efficiency is preserved.
The use of BMW BluePerformance technologies guarantees that the legally required EU6 emission standard is met. These technologies further optimise the emissions of the diesel engine.
In addition to the diesel particle filter and NOx catalytic converter, in some models a SCR catalytic converter (SCR = Selective Catalytic Reduction) with AdBlue injection is integrated. You can refill the AdBlue® solution yourself or you can arrange an appointment with your BMW Service Partner.
Further information on the uncomplicated refilling process can be found in the BMW BluePerformance brochure.
