Final Rule Republication for Control of Emissions of Air Pollution From Locomotive Engines and Marine Compression-Ignition Engines Less Than 30 Liters per Cylinder
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is adopting standards that will dramatically reduce emissions of diesel particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) from locomotives and marine diesel engines. This three-part program aims to (1) Tighten emission standards for existing locomotives and large marine diesel engines when they are remanufactured; (2) Set near-term engine-out emissions standards, referred to as Tier 3 standards, for newly-built locomotives and marine diesel engines; and (3) Set longer-term standards, referred to as Tier 4 standards, for newly-built locomotives and marine diesel engines that reflect the application of high-efficiency aftertreatment technology.
