Washington, D.C. – Last week, the mayors of four cities - Paris, Madrid, Mexico City and Athens - announced they had pledged to remove diesel vehicles from their cities by 2025. Last week, five African countries - Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo, Nigeria and Benin - announced they would reject shipments of high sulfur diesel fuel from Europe and demanded they begin receiving cleaner diesel fuel like that available in many other regions of the world.
While a variety of existing and proposed regulations will contribute towards meeting the U.S. climate commitment, diesel engines and the vehicles and equipment they power are already hard at work saving fuel and reducing emissions.
Demand for clean diesel fuel will only increase around the world as other countries’ economies grow, driving demand for powerful modern diesel engines that will also improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions across the globe. Moving forward with economic growth while trying to improve environmental quality is possible but it all starts with the cleaner fuel.
