Volvo Trucks North America’s D11 and D13 engines have been certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board as meeting upcoming 2010 diesel emissions standards, the most stringent in the world.
Volvo is the first truck manufacturer to have its heavy-duty diesel engines certified for 2010 by both EPA and CARB. These engines have been fully certified to meet EPA’s stringent standards without the use of emissions credits.
Volvo Trucks’ emissions technology for EPA2010 does more than cut emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) to near-zero levels. Using selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to reduce NOx, Volvo improved fuel economy and reduced emissions of CO2. SCR also helps eliminate active regenerations of the diesel particulate filter (DPF), which saves additional fuel.
All heavy-duty diesel truck engines produced after 1 January 2010 must meet the new standards.
