Emissions – there’s more work to be done

The U.S. has made major reductions in NOx emissions, but it’s been nearly 20 years since the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) updated standards. In a recent news release from (EPA), the agency explained that although U.S. NOx emissions fell by more than 40% from 2007 to 2017, there is more work to be done.

“It’s clear that reducing NOx emissions from heavy-duty vehicles is a clean air priority for this administration,” said EPA Office of Air and Radiation Assistant Administrator Bill Wehrum in a recent interview with trucking.com.

“EPA’s Cleaner Trucks Initiative announced in November 2018 is an important signal to all interested stakeholders that we will work hard on reducing emissions…” he continued.

“Across the country emissions reductions is a key goal not just for regulators but also for the trucking industry as well. We as an industry need to find ways to be able to transition to cleaner technology and companies like addvantage allow for us to do that in a way where we won’t have to increase the cost and become uncompetitive in the marketplace,” states Weston LaBar – CEO of the Harbor Trucking Association.
