COLUMBUS, Ind. –Cummins has been given the EPA nod of approval for its heavy-duty and mid-range engines with selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
The ISX15, ISB6.7, ISC8.3 and ISL9 engines have all been certified by the EPA, Cummins has announced.
EPA2010 engines call for the near elimination of NOx emissions.
“Receiving the formal certificates is an important step in the process as we enter 2010 with customer-ready products,” said Jim Kelly, president, Cummins Engine Business.
“This confirms that customers can be confident in the technology choice we’ve made to meet the new, more stringent emissions standards.”
Cummins claims its heavy-duty customers will achieve fuel savings of at least 5% when moving to the EPA2010 engines with SCR.
Mid-range engines are expected to boast up to 3% better fuel mileage than today’s offerings.
Later this year, Cummins will be introducing its much-anticipated new ISX11.9.
