 In the former, unburned hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) are converted to water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in the oxidation catalyst;\ In the second stage, the conversion of nitrogen oxides (NOx) into water and nitrogen by introduction of AdBlue (water and urea mixture – equivalent to Arla 32) into the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) catalyst;- In the third step, the reduction of 99.9% of the number of particles within the particle filter occurs.Quality tested under the most extreme conditionsIn order to guarantee a high level of reliability and resistance compatible with intense customer use of the new Peugeot Boxer, more than 4 million kilometers have been driven in its development under the most extreme conditions, whether under load, half load or empty, or on any type of route, including degraded roads and the mountain.Reliability and durability have also been proven by specific tests, including:- 1,500 hours in temperatures of -20 ° and + 40 ° C to guarantee the aging resistance ofthe components and materials of the mechanical, plastic and electronic parts;

 1000 passes in 10 cm of water or in 2 to 3 cm with projections of salt water, without washing of the vehicle during the following 1.000 km to validate the watertightness and the resistance to the corrosion;- 500,000 cycles of door closing and opening tests performed from -30 ° to + 80 ° C, representing a severe use by the customer over 10 years.In addition to the quality controls performed during all stages of production, more than 1,800 appearance and functional features are tested on each vehicle at the factory. Working quality at the service of reliability and durabilityAn example of brand excellenceThe new Peugeot Boxer is a van of dimensions L3H2, category K2-K3, most complete for sale in the Brazilian market. Available in a single version and in White Banquise color, the cost benefit in question of fuel economy, maintenance and serial items, plus the guarantee of one year or 100 thousand km is indisputable. Air-conditioning with manual adjustment, radio pre-arrangement, ESP / Hill Holder Control, GSI – Gear shift indicator, electric mirrors, under-console refrigerated cargo compartment, 12V socket and USB input , crankcase protector, driver and passenger airbag, steel wheel 225/75 / R16C – 116 / 114R, with homogeneous steppe, load separator, 270 ° door opening, alternator 180 °, among others.

The truth about Christmas

3. An artificial Christmas tree is not so environmentally friendly at all
They sometimes say that an artificial Christmas tree is better for the environment than a real one, because you use it more often. But before a fake Christmas tree is really ‘greener’ than a real Christmas tree, you will have to use it for about 10 years. This mainly has to do with the re-use of the real Christmas tree as compost and the raw materials that are needed for making and transporting artificial Christmas trees. Unfortunately, artificial Christmas trees often disappear much earlier on the garbage dump. Do you want a new tree more than once every ten years? Then it is better to buy a real one for the environment every year!

4. Santa is from Sinterklaas A somewhat more famous Christmas event: Santa Claus is descended from Sinterklaas.

Biblical truth frees us from superstitions and from customs that disapprove of God and that are detrimental to ourselves. The following comments show how biblical truth has released people from different countries from Christmas customs that they saw as a burden.

Liberated by the biblical truth

Argentina “Our family is free from the problems associated with overeating and drinking and the cost of gifts we could not afford,” says Oscar. Mario really felt free when he heard about the ‘Christmas lie’, as he calls it. “I now enjoy showing my appreciation by others by giving them gifts at other times, when my budget permits.” Canada “I love to give and receive presents,” writes Elfie. “But I do not like it when I have to give something. When our family did not celebrate Christmas anymore, that was quite a relief! ” Ulli, a daughter of Elfie, says: “When my parents did not celebrate Christmas anymore, they surprised us at all sorts of times in the year with nice trips and presents, and we loved that! When classmates asked us what it was for, we proudly said: ‘Just like that!’ Yet it was not easy for our parents to live according to biblical truth, because they were put under pressure by family. But they did not matter. That they were determined to serve Jehovah God in an acceptable manner had a great impact on me. ” Silvia also thought it was a liberation not to celebrate Christmas anymore. “I was very happy. I knew that I had the approval of Jehovah God, and that felt better than thousands of Christmas celebrations. “

Kenya Peter writes: “When I was still celebrating Christmas, I borrowed a lot of money to buy gifts and pay extended meals. That meant of course that I had to work overtime, so I could not be with my family. I was very happy to be free of that! ” “I give gifts to my family and friends at all times, and vice versa,” says Carolyne. “I find such unexpected gifts that are given from a pure heart the most beautiful.”  Japan “Our children have learned that it is not self-evident that they get presents,” Hiroshi and Rie write. “As parents, it makes us happy to see that they understand that giving must come from the heart. Keiko says: “Our family always celebrated Christmas. If we were certain that our son was sleeping, my husband and I put a present next to his bed. The next morning we said to him: “Because you’ve been nice, you’ve got a present from Santa Claus.” When I heard the background of Christmas and told my son about it, he was startled and started to cry. As a result, I realized that Christmas is not as beautiful as it is always depicted. It’s a lie, and I felt like I had deceived my son by holding on to that lie. ” Philippines Dave says: “It is difficult to express the joy that Jehovah gives us through the pure truths in the Bible. When members of our family give something to others, we do not expect to get anything back. And we give from our hearts. “
