Industry airs concerns over next round of EPA truck standards

Industry anticipation, and concern, is building as the release of the official proposed EPA Phase II regulations grow closer.  Attendees at the Green Truck Summit here in Indy received a general outlook at what the EPA is looking towards when those rules are released “this spring,” according to Matthew Spears, center director of heavy-duty diesel programs for the Environmental Protection Agency. “A lot of the work we’ve been doing in the last couple of years has been on the technical side on what technologies may be needed,” he said during a panel discussion. Spears noted that the EPA has a relatively large list of possible technologies that it is looking at in meeting the goals. “There are a number of factors that go into which technologies to consider for specific applications,” he said, showing a slide with some of the possibilities.
