The Diesel Technology Forum issued the following statement regarding the final report of a multi year Advanced Collaborative Emissions Study (ACES) conducted by Health Effects Institute (HEI).
“The significance of this study and its conclusions cannot be overstated. The results of this new study verify the environmental benefits of the new clean diesel technology, which have near zero emissions for nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and particulate matter. And while this study focused on heavy duty truck emissions, the new clean diesel technology has the potential for impacting all sectors, including passenger cars, agriculture, construction, maritime and transportation.
“The comprehensive nature of this study by such an authoritative body as the HEI is extremely significant. It’s also important to highlight that the US EPA, the California Air Resources Board, the US DOE and the US Federal Highway Administration are sponsors of this study in conjunction with the manufacturers of emissions control equipment.”
