Washington, D.C. – With President Obama’s trip to Alaska and the Arctic this week and emphasis on increasing the United States’ commitment to reducing emissions and greenhouse gases, it’s important to highlight the gains already accomplished with the increased use of advanced clean diesel technology and fuels, said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum. “A complete transformation of diesel technology in the U.S. has taken place in the last 15 years that has virtually eliminated particulate (soot) emissions from new diesel engines across the board,” Schaeffer said. “For example, emissions from heavy-duty diesel trucks and buses have been reduced by 99 percent for nitrogen oxides (NOx) - an ozone precursor - and 98 percent for particulate emissions, which include black carbon.
Washington, D.C. – With September 1st marking the official kick-off to the new model year in the automotive world, consumers can now begin shopping for the 2016 models - particularly the most fuel efficient and cost efficient vehicles. Detailed information comparing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of diesel cars with gasoline cars will be the focus of a free webinar this Wednesday.
