No delay for US rules for clean diesel engines - EPA
Author: Reuters, Published on: 2 August 2002
The Environmental Protection Agency yesterday formalized penalties against manufacturers of heavy-duty diesel engines that fail to meet lower government-mandated emissions standards by the 2004 model year, rejecting an industry request to delay the rules. The decision is a defeat for Caterpillar Inc. and other diesel engine makers, as well as their allies in Congress, who had lobbied the Bush administration to delay the anti-pollution rules.
