Environment Friendly Chevy Parts

By: Anthony Fontanelle

This year, Chevrolet or popularly known as Chevy, has unveiled its line-up of upcoming cars and concepts. Surely, this will again gain great acclamation in the automotive world just like what other Chevy models have achieved. Ever since, Chevrolet has been committed in creating cars that are economic and environment-friendly. One of the car models that this company offers is the hybrid Silverado that is equipped with environmental friendly Chevy parts. This somehow answers and clears the perverted mentality of some people with regards to the car's contribution to environmental degradation.

In particular, the basic car by-product that contributes to pollution is its gas emission. In one way or another, this emission may affect the environment as well as human health. It is now a matter of intervention of car makers by way of integrating emission filtering Chevy parts or by inventing another form of engine that is not gasoline or combustible fuel dependent. But with the aggressive moves of car manufacturers in answering several environmental disputes, Chevrolet has managed to make a way by utilizing parts that somehow lower the effects of gas emissions to the atmosphere.

In the 70's, Catalytic converters have become a widely acclaimed pollution controlling device. Until now, most cars, including those made by Chevrolet, are using this gas converter. Catalytic converters are considered essential Chevy parts that greatly helped in the preservation of the environment. They serve as post combustion mechanisms that alter certain dangerous gas emissions such as carbon monoxide and nitrous oxides (NOx). This device is located along the exhaust pipe, from under the chassis. Another environment-friendly Chevy part is the EGR which stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. This EGR is responsible for deadening the nitrous oxide compound by circulating it back to the combustion cylinder. This is mounted in the engine assembly. An EGR is needed in cars because a catalytic Converter is not enough to convert NOx gases into simpler compounds.

At this point, Chevrolet has integrated another pollution controlling add-on. In fact this is equipped in its upcoming truck - the 2008 3500HD Silverado. The company tagged this device a DPF or Diesel Particulate Filter. This device helps lower the soot emission of diesel engines. The integration of this device to diesel engine vehicles is in line with the Euro 5's standards on gaseous emissions. With this, the company proved that there are really environmental friendly .
