EPA issues new set of emissions standards

 

  

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation on Aug. 16

issued the final draft of the next round of emissions and fuel economy standards for U.S.

heavy-duty trucks, calling for a 25 percent reduction in certain greenhouse gases by 2027

when compared to 2018 year-model equipment. The new rules likely will drive up the costs

of trucks and trailers. 


The EPA says in the 1,690 page document published Aug. 16 that it expects final standards

to lower CO2 emissions by approximately 1.1 billion metric tons and save vehicle owners

about $170 billion in fuel costs, while reducing oil consumption by up to 2 billion barrels

over the lifetime of the vehicles sold under the program. To read the full article about the
