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.
Dukovany - Technicians of nuclear power plant Dukovany held a blackout drill today training resumption of power supplies after a fictitious power outage, using two new standby diesel generators that were installed last year. Each of the new diesel generators has an output of 3.2 megawatts. Before their purchase Dukovany had 12 smaller generators. The necessity to buy new and bigger generators ensued from stress tests that were carried out after the accident of Japanese nuclear power plant Fukushima.

Tulare, CA – The world’s most advanced and efficient clean diesel equipment and technology for America and the world’s agricultural sector is being unveiled to the public and farm industry at this week’s 2015 World AG Expo in Tulare, CA. “This new generation clean diesel technologies is ultimately a game-changer for farmers here in America and ultimately around the world," said Allen Schaeffer of the Diesel Technology Forum. "With near-zero emissions, these machines are capable of doing more work than ever before, and will help boost the farm economy and contribute to improved air quality. Meeting these stringent ‘Tier 4’ U.S. emissions standards is made possible by the clean diesel system which combines ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, advanced clean burning diesel engines, and emissions control and exhaust aftertreatment systems."
“This week, government leaders in Paris have taken bold and decisive action to encourage a future transition to newer and cleaner technology - and that includes clean diesel,” said Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the non-profit Diesel Technology Forum. “We are encouraged that the plan has been modified to take a more sensible approach that recognizes the advancements that have occurred in clean diesel technology over time and the incredible popularity of diesel in France. The new generation of clean diesel technology will help the City of Paris, as well as all of France, meet its near term goals on improving air quality while maintaining progress to lower greenhouse gas emissions like carbon dioxide (CO2).”
