New Emissions Technology Can Save Truckers Thousands

Truckers using equipment that truck and trailer manufacturers have just begun offering customers on 2007 models can save 2,000 to 4,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year, gaining as much as $11,000 annually from the technology that is certified by EPA's SmartWay program to improve fuel efficiency. EPA said the equipment reduces greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants.

"These new trucks will make an important contribution toward achieving EPA's goals for conserving energy and reducing emissions," said Bill Wehrum, EPA's acting assistant administrator for Air and Radiation. "Truckers who buy this new equipment, and who are members of the EPA SmartWay program, will be able to proudly display a logo on their qualified big-rigs."

SmartWay-approved equipment includes aerodynamic bumpers and mirrors, and it can save as much as 10-20 percent more fuel than trucks without the devices. Program participants include Freightliner, International, Kenworth, Mack, Peterbilt, and Volvo, according to EPA. For information, visit epa.gov/smartway.
