The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing new, stronger standards to promote clean air and reduce pollution from heavy-duty vehicles and engines starting in model year (MY) 2027. The proposed standards would reduce emissions of smog- and soot-forming nitrogen oxides (NOx) from heavy-duty gasoline and diesel engines and set updated greenhouse gas (GHG) standards for certain commercial vehicle categories. This proposed
Modern commercial vehicles have made incredible strides in fuel efficiency and emissions reductions, and continuing innovation, research and regulation is anticipated to deliver even greater savings in coming years, according to regulators, industry leaders, and vehicle, engine and fuel manufacturers heard recently at the SAE Government/Industry Meeting in Washington, D.C. During a two-part session titled
Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has announced support for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s recently announced Cleaner Truck Initiative.

I should be used to it by now, but I just can’t get over the continued lunacy of both state and federal legislators. They continue to advance legislation without trying to understand the applicable science or business reasons for not doing so. They call it “technology forcing legislation.” The latest fiasco to grab my attention
Recently, at a joint meeting of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Eric Jorgensen, chairman of the American Truck Dealers (ATD), said that the Phase II of the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) initiative needs to make certain that truck and engine efficiency standards are affordable
At an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hearing on the future of greenhouse gas and fuel efficiency standards, Alan Schaeffer, the executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum, testified on behalf of the diesel industry. “Today, manufacturers of commercial trucks, engines and their components produce the cleanest, safest and
With the recently announced Elite level from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) SmartWay program, trailers must be equipped with aerodynamic devices that provide at least a 9% improvement in fuel economy to qualify. SmartTruck’s UT6Plus aerodynamic product provides the fuel saving performance required by EPA SmartWay to deliver those results, making it the only
Westport has also received certification from the EPA for its 2015 model year Ford F-250 and F-350, 6.2 L super duty trucks with the Westport WiNG bi-fuel CNG system. EPA certified vehicles meet the EPA’s emission standards. The Westport WiNG-operated Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks run on both gasoline and CNG and are available with
The U.S.’s lack of a coherent national energy policy is about to cost us considerable money, wasted energy and possibly valuable forest lands. When corn-based ethanol was originally proposed, it was with the promise that corn-based ethanol was merely a first-generation solution. The second-generation solution, cellulosic-based ethanol, would soon be commercialized, and then it would be
