VANCOUVER, B.C. – Cummins Westport has received a $760,000 cash injection to help further develop its low-emission natural gas engines. The funding was awarded by California’s South Coast Air Quality Management District and will help Cummins Westport develop heavy-duty natural gas engines that reduce particulate matter to non-detectable levels.

“The addition of catalyzed particulate controls will reduce particulate matter emissions to virtually zero,” says Hugh Foden, president of Cummins Westport. The company produces low-emission natural gas bus engines, and its natural gas Cummins ISX heavy-duty truck engine will be available in 2004.
