Caterpillar Inc. showed President Bush the clean diesel technology that it will use to meet the stringent 2007 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards for on-highway truck and bus engines.

Utilizing a Cat C13 engine with ACERT technology, the company displayed a 2007 emissions-compliant truck at an event in West Point, Va. Caterpillar invested more than $1 billion in research and development for ACERT to meet the 2007 emissions standards, according to Doug Oberhelman, Caterpillar group president.

ACERT is a differentiated, breakthrough technology that reduces emissions at the point of combustion. All Caterpillar on-highway truck and bus engines now in production are equipped with ACERT technology.
