The event was held in San Antonio, Texas in conjunction with the 2017 DEF Forum USA presented by Integer Research.
Integer Research launched the awards this year to recognize excellence throughout North America's DEF supply chain. The DEF Equipment Innovation category recognizes organizations within the DEF industry whose equipment or technology has contributed to the growth and development of the industry. Nominees must currently design and manufacture innovative new DEF equipment and/or technology, made significant improvements to existing equipment and/or technology, and demonstrate their products have the ability to resolve unique industry challenges.
In late 2007, SPATCO Energy Solutions began engineering and producing a line of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) dispensing and storage systems under the brand SPATCO DEF in response to the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Tier 2 emission standards that required new light duty diesel vehicles and trucks to meet an average NOx emission level of 0.07 grams per mile. The SCR technology that nearly all diesel engine manufacturers chose at that time, and are currently using, require diesel exhaust fluid that is added to the exhaust stream to promote 90 percent NOx conversion efficiency. SPATCO DEF's custom designed products are manufactured in the USA and provide the highest quality, most durable products in the industry. Both retail and commercial DEF users can safely store and dispense their fluid from SPATCO DEF equipment without the risk of contamination.
SPATCO Energy Solutions, a Blue Ridge Industries company, is a single-source supplier of innovative liquid handling equipment and service for petroleum, diesel exhaust fluid, industrial, and natural gas. SPATCO has served the industry for nearly 90 years and is a channel partner and nationwide service and installation provider for Galileo Technologies North America natural gas conversion equipment.
