Don’t rule out Diesel Clean: DTF

In response to a 15-state mission to achieve 100% zero-emission commercial truck sales by 2050, the Diesel Technology Forum (DTF) said that new generation diesel-powered trucks are vital in achieving near-term climate and clean air goals.

“While the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) recently announced takes a long view of all-electric commercial trucks in the region, there are equally important, proven and available near-term opportunities to advance cleaner air and lower greenhouse gas emissions right now,” said Allen Schaeffer, DTF’s Executive Director.

“Rapidly accelerating the turnover of the existing fleet to the newest generation of diesel technology and expanding the use of low-carbon advanced biofuels can, and should not be overlooked, bring benefits today.”
