Demonstration diesel engine puts brakes on pollution

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 31, 2000) — A Navistar International Corp. school bus equipped with the company’s low-emission “Green Diesel” engine and advanced aftertreatment control produced none of the smoke or fumes usually associated with diesel during a demonstration for environmental regulators last week.

The test was intended to show that the companyƕs Green Diesel Technology could meet stringent standards proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board for compliance between 2007 and 2010.

Navistar’s system has better particulate emissions than similar vehicles using natural gas; and its gaseous hydrocarbons are reduced below measurable levels, providing a diesel solution to the toxic emission health issue.
