All major heavy truck and engine manufacturers now comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards and have been agency-certified for full production, the Diesel Technology Forum recently announced.

The EPA has certified Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, International, Mack and Volvo to the world’s most stringent diesel emissions standards, the industry group says. The new engines, equipped with particulate filters, run 90 percent cleaner than before.

“The technology on these trucks has been engineered through millions of miles of testing, which has shown the performance, fuel economy and durability required to not only meet but exceed customer expectations,” says Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the forum.
