Eligible fleets wanting to make environmentally responsible changes to their vehicles now can apply for government grants to offset the costs of retrofitting their existing trucks. International truck and IC Bus dealers offer a suite of products that may qualify under federal, state and local clean diesel grant programs.
“Our International dealers are ready to help customers improve their truck’s emissions by capitalizing on available government incentive programs,” says Roger Kuchar, business development manager of green diesel technology for Navistar Parts, based in Warrenville, Ill. “Millions of dollars are available, and it’s a smart way to reduce a vehicle’s carbon footprint without breaking the bank.”
Parts that may qualify for these government programs, according to Navistar, include:
Battery-powered heating and air-conditioning systems;
Thermal storage systems;
Diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC);
Diesel particulate filters (DPF); and
Closed crankcase ventilation (CCV).
