Environmental regulations poised to alter future of trucking equipment

From Transport Topics.

A plethora of upcoming environmental regulations are poised to reshape the trucking industry’s equipment market by further curbing engine emissions and pushing adoption of zero-emission trucks.

Passed and proposed rules from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California’s Air Resources Board will require further reductions in nitrogen oxide and greenhouse gas emissions that could force significant changes to diesel engines.

Meanwhile, CARB’s finalized Advanced Clean Trucks rule and proposed Advanced Clean Fleets rule would require increasing sales and deployments of zero-emission trucks in California and other states that opt in to those standards in the years ahead.

Trucking and manufacturing executives discussed how the industry can prepare for this time of transition during an Oct. 23 panel discussion at American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition.
