COLUMBUS, Ind. –By the end of August, Cummins has built and shipped more than 26,000 heavy-duty and mid-range engines with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust aftertreatment, according to the manufacturer.
“Our technology experience and our own testing of the alternatives to meet the EPA 2010 emissions levels give us great confidence in our SCR solution, and we are confident that SCR is the right technology for now and for the future,” said Rich Freeland, president of Cummins’ engine business. “The fact that SCR is the right technology is being proven in the marketplace every day with our industry-leading engines. To date, the reliability data show that this has been our best launch ever. Our 2010 products are delivering up to 6% better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions, and they are meeting the near-zero emissions levels required by EPA2010 standards.”
Cummins has developed and certified 13 engine families to the EPA and California Air Resources Board (ARB) regulations to serve more than 60 OEM customers in 180 vehicle installations.
