Engine Manufacturers Ready to Implement 2010 Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Standards

Engine manufacturers have invested heavily in engineering technological solutions and design changes to meet the new NOx emission standard that is required for 2010 model-year engines and see no technological barriers to meeting the standard, according to EMA President Jed Mandel.

CHICAGO — The Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA) said its members are on schedule and ready to meet the EPA’s stringent 2010 emission standards for heavy-duty engines.

Engine manufacturers have invested heavily in engineering technological solutions and design changes to meet the new NOx emission standard that is required for 2010 model-year engines and see no technological barriers to meeting the standard, according to EMA President Jed Mandel.

"All engine and vehicle manufacturers will have product available to meet the applicable emissions standards when 2010 models are introduced," said Mandel. "Engine manufacturers successfully brought compliant products to the market when the new emissions standards for PM and NOx were implemented in 2007, and our members are on track to meet the 2010 emissions standards as well. Fleet and truck owners can be confident that reliable, durable and fuel efficient vehicles meeting the 2010 emission standards will be available."

Addressing current economic conditions and implementation of the 2010 standards, Mandel continued: "Fleet owners and operators are experiencing very tough times due to the current national economic conditions, as are engine and vehicle manufacturers. We also recognize that customers have questions regarding new and unfamiliar technology that will be required for 2010 vehicles, and that those uncertainties have the potential to impact new vehicle sales over the next couple of years. On those issues, EMA continues to support efforts to provide financial incentives to customers and early adopters of the 2010 technology as a way to assist fleet owners and to ensure that the anticipated emissions reduction benefits from the new technology are realized."
