EPA’s Tough Diesel Engine Standards Celebrated at New Haven School; State of Connecticut Also Praised for Diesel-emission Reduction Efforts | Newsroom | US EPA: “NEW HAVEN, CT – Flanked by students who are especially vulnerable to the adverse health impacts from diesel pollution, state and federal environmental leaders met today to celebrate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recent approval of a new Clean Air Nonroad Diesel Rule that will cut emission levels from construction, agricultural and industrial diesel-powered equipment by more than 90 percent. The new rule, signed yesterday by EPA Administrator Mike Leavitt, will also remove 99 percent of the sulfur in diesel fuel by 2010, resulting in a dramatic reduction in soot from all diesel engines.”
