COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins has announced it has now shipped nearly 37,000 EPA2010-certified engines with selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
The company says customer feedback has been positive and reports of 6% improved fuel economy over EPA07 models are common.
“The positive feedback we’re receiving from customers across North America in various environments is in line with both Cummins’ and customers’ expectations of our 2010 products. SCR is a key factor in enabling our engines to achieve these fuel economy improvements and performance standards,” said Rich Freeland, president of the engine business.
The company is participating in the Diesel Technology Forum at the Clean Diesel 10 event in Washington, D.C. this week to showcase its latest products.
“Cummins is pleased to be with the Diesel Technology Forum this week to commemorate the evolution that the industry has made toward clean diesel,” said Srikanth Padmanabhan, vice-president and general manager, Cummins Emission Solutions. “Ten years ago, the EPA’s Heavy-Duty Highway Diesel Rule was finalized, and the engines on display today are delivering over 90% reduction in Oxides of Nitrogen and Particulate Matter. Getting diesel emissions to near-zero levels over the last decade was a challenge that Cummins embraced as a technology leader in the industry. With SCR technology, I’m confident that the next decade will provide many advances that are mutually beneficial to clean air and satisfied customers.”
