“Worldwide DEF consumption is expected to increase more than 400 percent in the next 10 years,” says Luke Van Wyk, owner and national sales manager, Thunder Creek Equipment. “If a business owner isn’t currently running machines with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), it is very likely that they will be soon. We put together this webinar to help educate owners, operators, fleet managers, technicians, purchasers—anyone who works with DEF—so that as an industry we can continue to define standards and best practices as this technology becomes a more critical part of our world.”

Van Wyk will serve as the host and moderator of the webinar. In addition to his role at Thunder Creek, Van Wyk also serves on the Association of Equipment Management Professionals’ committee for fuel and DEF purity. He is also a regular speaker at the annual Integer Emissions Summit & DEF Forum USA’s off-highway DEF market panel.
