Volvo Meets 2007 EPA Standards For Truck Engines

New standards reduce nitrogen oxide by 50 percent and particulates by 90 percent.

The Volvo Group said Wednesday that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified its new engine family for the emissions standards that go into effect in North America on January 1, 2007. Volvo is one of the first truck manufacturers to have its engines certified to that standard.

Volvo’s D series and MP series engines were certified for the emissions standards that apply to all heavy-duty diesel engines built after January 1, 2007 for trucks on the North American market. Those standards reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 percent and the particulate emissions by 90 percent.
