Blue Bird Bus Engines Earn EPA, CARB Certification

The buses operate with near-zero emissions, according to the company.

Blue Bird Corporation, a leading manufacturer of school buses that is based in Fort Valley, Ga., announced that the Cummins ISB6.7 engineers in its 2010-2012 school buses has received certification from EPA and the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The company also said customers are reporting outstanding results from Selective Catalytic Reduction technology that, to date, has been installed on more than 10,000 school buses by the company.

"The ability to deliver these new ratings can be attributed to Cummins' total system integration with SCR technology. This system integration, coupled with the highly capable base engine, result[s] in the ability to deliver near-zero emissions without compromising fuel economy, reliability or durability," its Feb. 21 news release states. "Currently, Cummins is the only certified school bus diesel engine manufacturer with ratings that meet the 0.20g- NOx standard without the use of emissions credits."

"This accomplishment by our diesel engine partner, Cummins, is excellent news for our school bus customers and fully supports our leadership position in offering green solutions to the school bus industry. Blue Bird is focused on providing customers with the best in affordable, green technology, and Cummins' SCR technology gives our customers the ability to achieve near-zero emissions," said Phil Horlock, president and CEO of Blue Bird.
