2010 Diesels Using Emissions Credits Fine for California Over Long Run


- July 5, 2010

Some fleets have been con­cerned that California’s require­ment that all diesel engines on the road meet 2010 emis­sion stan­dards by 2023 could be a prob­lem for cur­rent engines that meet low­er stan­dards but use cred­its. CARB announced they will not dis­tin­guish between the engines meet­ing the 0.20 gram per brake horse­pow­er-hour and those meet­ing the 0.50 g/bhp-hr of NOx lev­els with cred­its.
