International, EPA Partner on Emissions Control Technology

International Truck and Engine Corporation is partnering with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to evaluate a new, low-cost diesel emissions control technology claimed to hold great potential for trucks.


International Truck and Engine Corporation is partnering with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to evaluate a new, low-cost diesel emissions control technology claimed to hold great potential for trucks.

“We’ve worked collaboratively with the EPA on emissions control for many years, and it’s given us a great advantage in finding low-cost, viable solutions to customers’ needs,” said Daniel Ustian, Navistar International Corp.’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “This new partnership with the EPA enhances our opportunity to deliver a low-cost diesel solution that will meet 2007 light-duty standards and 2010 heavy-duty standards.”

The new technology, Clean Diesel Combustion, uses in-cylinder control of nitrogen oxides (NOx) to reduce or eliminate entirely the need for aftertreatment related to NOx. Building on the EPA’s original development of this technology at its National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan, International will evaluate the technology in its light-duty V6 diesel engine.

The new technology relies on improvements in several diesel engine systems, including fuel injection, air management, turbocharging and combustion. It thus eliminates the need to rely on NOx aftertreatment technologies in order to reach upcoming EPA emissions standards.
