particulate filterMercedes-Benz’s engineers have developed a new filter to hold the smallest particles in the exhaust gases of the petrol engine.

Gasoline engines of latest generation with direct fuel injection, despite the low level of CO2 in the exhaust emit more than harmful particles, including carcinogenic, than previous generations of engines. Such particles can easily penetrate into the lungs of man and have a negative impact on human health.

Mercedes-Benz engineers propose to solve this problem by installing an optional particulate filter. The effectiveness of development will be confirmed experimentally in the laboratory for two years.
The first “experimental” car with a new filter will be Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which at the beginning of next year will survive the planned restyling.
