EPA Finalizes Rule on Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emission Standards
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a final rule on the "Control of Air Pollution from New Motor Vehicles: Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards" today. This final rule seeks to further reduce air pollution, including ozone and particulate matter (PM), from heavy-duty engines and vehicles across the United States.
The final program includes new emission standards that are significantly more stringent and that cover a wider range of heavy-duty engine operating conditions compared to today’s standards; further, the final program requires these more stringent emissions standards to be met for a longer period of when these engines operate on the road.
