LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. & GREENSBORO, N.C. — Volvo and Mack have filed applications with the Environmental Protection Agency to certify their 2007 engines.
Both Mack and Volvo use exhaust gas recirculation combined with a diesel particulate filter to meet the stringent 2007 emissions standards, which go into effect Jan. 1.
“We believe that this sends a strong message that Mack is ready for 2007,” said Paul Vikner, president and CEO of Mack. “We have worked very hard to get to this point, and were confident that our ’07 solution delivers the level of performance and value that our customers expect and demand in a Mack truck.”
“Volvo is on schedule with our new engines and 2007 emissions control,” added Peter Karlsten, president and CEO of Volvo. “Volvo’s status as the largest heavy-duty diesel manufacturer in the world has given us the resources to bring excellent new technology solutions to customers, to improve their productivity while also improving the environment. We are confident that in 2007 our customers will experience the level of fuel efficiency, reliability and operating efficiency they have come to expect from Volvo engines.”
