The Diesel Technology Forum congratulates all the winners of the inaugural Diesel Progress Awards, especially forum members Caterpillar, Volvo Penta of the Americas and John Deere. The awards celebrate innovation in making internal combustion engines and machines more efficient, powerful and productive.

As was noted at the Diesel Progress Summit by a number of leaders in the industry, advanced diesel engines are, and will continue to be, an important power choice, especially for commercial vehicle and industrial applications, the Diesel Technology Forum says. These awards demonstrate how hybrids, electrics and other alternative powertrains are also part of the story. Every one of these technology types play an important role in an “all of the above” approach that delivers continued progress on cleaner air and lower carbon emissions, the group says.

With its unmatched combination of energy density, fuel efficiency, power and performance, the newest generation of clean diesel technology meets the increasing demands of truckers, construction companies and farmers while also delivering lower greenhouse gas emissions and cleaner air for everyone, the group says. The more these newest, most-efficient, near-zero emission diesel engines can be put to work, the greater the fuel savings and emission reductions delivered to the communities in which they operate, whether that be from a commercial truck, a farm tractor, a tugboat or a locomotive.
