Daimler Trucks North America pledges support for EPA Cleaner Truck Initiative

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has announced support for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s recently announced Cleaner Truck Initiative. DTNA says that it strongly supports the EPA’s initiative to streamline regulatory requirements and improve air quality, while maintaining a regulatory framework that encourages reliable, durable products with low total cost of ownership (TCO). The company cites its 20 years of commitment to the reduction of NOx and particulate emissions, noting that it has reduced NOx emissions by more than 90% and particulate emissions by more than 98%.

“DTNA looks forward to working with the EPA on the Cleaner Truck Initiative,” said Sean Waters, DTNA’s director of regulatory compliance. “We are confident that the Cleaner Air Initiative will provide real-world emission reductions, streamline certification and compliance, and continue to enable us to provide vehicles with the best TCO.”

The initiative kicks off a process for the reduction of NOx and particulate emissions; specific goals will be made public in the coming months.
