The seminar, which was hosted by SCHOOL BUS FLEETand drew a record number of attendees compared to its previous seminars, featured a panel of experts discussing such issues as how advanced exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) works, EGR vs. selective catalytic reduction (SCR), and how to save money on maintenance and fuel.
