The Association of Diesel Specialists released a statement of its green policies. ADS says it believes in economical, durable and clean diesel engines as one of the key elements for addressing global pollution and fossil fuel depletion.
As part of the association’s commitment to clean diesel, the ADS board of directors has created a “Green Statement” to explain its stance on the subject:
“ADS believes in the future of clean diesel as part of an environmental solution to global greenhouse gas issues. ADS believes in the future of the inherently more efficient clean diesel power plant as a method of reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. ADS applauds the work of engine manufacturers in their efforts to continuously reduce emissions in diesel engines to near infinitesimal levels. ADS believes that the use of clean diesel will improve the sustainability of consumers, businesses and communities by reducing the environmental and societal cost of their activities.”
The association says it does not condone the use of devices made to intentionally contravene emissions controls for use in equipment or vehicles used on a regular basis. ADS believes that intentionally bypassing or altering emissions controls in the name of performance enhancement undermines individual and group efforts to promote the use of clean diesel as a viable alternative power plant for the future.
