"Over the last decade in particular, the diesel industry has invested billions of dollars in development of cleaner diesel fuels, advanced engines, and emissions control technology. The greatest benefits from these new technologies come as they are introduced into the population. Today we estimate that more than one-third of all the heavy-duty commercial trucks on the road in the U.S. are 2007 or later model year and have the most sophisticated emissions control technology."Beyond meeting low particulate and NOx emissions standards, manufacturers of medium and heavy duty trucks and engines for the U.S. are now on course to meet the first-ever greenhouse gas reductions and fuel economy standards ever enacted. These new standards that begin in model year 2014 will reduce CO2 emissions by 10 to 23 percent depending on type of truck", Schaeffer said.
