“Today’s final rule establishes the next chapter for advanced diesel engines, one that is even nearer to zero emissions and more durable than ever,’’ said Executive Director Allen Schaeffer.

“Today’s final rule establishes the next chapter for advanced diesel engines, one that is even nearer to zero emissions and more durable than ever,’’ said Executive Director Allen Schaeffer. “DTF members are the leaders in design and manufacture of engines, emissions controls, and key components that will deliver the benefits to communities and truckers this rule envisions. The rule establishes many new challenges for manufacturers and suppliers but also ensures diesel’s place in the future for trucking.

“The current generation of new diesel trucks is more fuel-efficient and emit less than 1/60th the emissions of 2000 models. They’re already near zero emission for both oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter. Of all commercial trucks in operation today, 53% are of this newest generation, a number that has steadily grown since 2010.

“Just under half of registered commercial trucks operating today are an older generation — pre-2011 model year vehicles with relatively higher emissions without the benefit of particulate traps and/or selective catalytic reduction technology. The relative benefit of accelerating the turnover of these older trucks on the road today to newer technology will be enormous.
