The Diesel Particulate Filter, (DPF) which is fitted as standard to all diesel engines aged 2009 onwards, is designed to remove soot from the exhaust gases before they are emitted into the atmosphere. The DPF is designed to be cleaned regularly, via the cars management system, through a process called regeneration. The accumulated soot is burnt off at high temperature (around 600 degrees c) to leave only a residue of ash, effectively renewing or regenerating the DPF.
