Washington, D.C. – New orders of clean diesel and diesel-electric hybrid buses by transit agencies in major communities like San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, and New York over the past year are a strong indication that clean diesel technology is still the all-around best choice for public transportation according to Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum.
"BorgWarner's advanced emissions and ignition technologies help automakers meet stringent emissions standards while improving fuel economy and engine performance," said Brady Ericson, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions Systems. "Our expansion in Mexico complements our recent multimillion-dollar investment in Dixon, Illinois. It is an important part of our overall growth and consolidation strategy aimed at serving our customers' growing needs."
French President Francois Hollande: "I want to highlight that the most recent diesel engines are also the most efficient in the fight against the greenhouse gas emissions. It’s really important to say it because on one hand diversification is a must – this is the reason of the gasoline engine line implementation in this site – but on the other hand we must also defend the high efficiency diesel engine produced here.”
Washington, D.C. – As the U.S. advances efforts to increase passenger car mileage and decrease Greenhouse Gas emissions in the coming years, advanced clean diesel vehicles can play a key role in achieving efficiency and environmental gains providing new government policies don’t hinder current or future technological advances, an industry panel said Wednesday during a Congressional briefing on Capitol Hill. The briefing entitled - “Driving the Future: Technologies are ready to meet future fuel economy and clean air goals; what about policies?” – was hosted by the nonprofit associations Diesel Technology Forum and U.S. Coalition for Advanced Diesel Cars.
Washington, D.C. – With increasingly stringent fuel economy requirements that will be mandated in the U.S. in the near future, automobile and engine manufacturers from all over the globe are introducing more fuel efficient technology options, including clean diesel choices, into their line-ups. The potential for the United States to be an emerging market for clean diesel vehicles and the many economic and clean air benefits of the new technology will the focus of a Congressional briefing and luncheon on Wednesday, March 11th.
