PORTLAND, Ore. — The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified DTNA’s complete portfolio of model year 2013 on-highway, vocational and medium duty vehicles as fully compliant with the new greenhouse gas 2014 (GHG14) regulations.

The company achieved compliance a year ahead of schedule of the EPA and the Department of Transportation’s Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s first program for reducing heavy- and medium-duty truck GHG emissions.

Under GHG14 regulations, trucks and buses built in 2014 through 2018 are projected to reduce oil consumption by 530 million barrels and GHG emissions by 270 million metric tonnes.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and EPA designed the GHG14 standards to address climate change, as well as to improve fuel efficiency and reduce oil consumption.

EPA designed the GHG standard under the Clean Air Act, and NHTSA included the fuel efficiency standard as a part of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA).
