“Diesel today has near-zero emissions, which makes it competitive for fleets from a green perspective,” says Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum. Meanwhile, transport industries have learned practical lessons about attendant maintenance and refuelling issues as they diversify toward natural gas or hybrid choices. “The promised land would be for the most intensive energy users to switch, but not everyone is suited,” says Schaeffer.
