Self Study Program 330 – The diesel particulate filter system with additive
VAG SSP 330. Combustion will remain in the foreseeable future an important method of energy conversion, whether in power stations, cars – or even fireplaces. Every fire leaves behind harmful by-products of combustion – particles of soot for example.
The aim is to avoid risks to the environment and health caused by the generation and release of carbon soot.
These aspects and strict emissions legislation have led engineers to place particular emphasis on the continual reduction of particulate emissions.
One way to reduce the emission of carbon soot is with a diesel particulate filter.
