On June 7, the “Professor Ferdinand Porsche Prize 2013” was awarded at the TU-WIEN.


The “Professor Ferdinand Porsche Prize of the Vienna University of Technology” was endowed by distinguished businesswoman Louise Piech in 1976, awarded for the first time in 1977 and is endowed with 50,000 euro, jointly provided by Porsche Holding, Salzburg, and Porsche AG, Stuttgart. The “Professor Ferdinand Porsche Prize” is awarded every two years to technicians whose inventions have had a lasting influence on the development of the automobile.


The 2013 prize winner is: Dr. Magnus MackAldener (Scania CV AB) with his development of the “First EURO VI truck on the market with a modular and innovative exhaust gas aftertreatment system”.


Dr. Magnus MackAldener received the award for his development of an exhaust aftertreatment module for use in heavy-duty trucks from 230 – 500 hp. The special feature of this module is its compliance with the extremely demanding legal limits of the EURO VI emissions standard, which is achieved with SCR alone, and its very small size. Further advantages of this technology are no additional fuel consumption and the possibility of use in all previous SCANIA vehicle versions.


Further technical details of the new technology:

– The low emissions according to Euro VI standard are based on oxidation catalyst, particulate filter and SCR technology.

– It is the most compact system in the 400 to 500 hp power class due to the development of an innovative AdBlue evaporation system

– Low weight of only 130kg

– Space-saving cube shape (L x W x H: 623 x 630 x 710 mm) – still leaves enough room for large tank volume

– Economical, modular solution to best meet customer needs
