LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. — Mack Trucks revealed the US Environmental Protection Agency has certified its MP engine series to the 2007 emissions standards that go into effect Jan. 1 of next year.
Mack is using a combination of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to satisfy the new requirements, which reduce allowable levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) by a minimum of 50% and particulates by a minimum of 90% from today’s levels.
“This milestone further confirms the effectiveness of our ’07 solution, and the fact that we are ready to deliver the performance and value that our customers expect and demand from Mack,” said Paul Vikner, president and CEO.
