The state environmental policymakers attending the Spring Meeting of the US Environmental Council of States (ECOS) have heard how states can achieve the most cost-effective and immediate air emission reductions by targeting the largest sources of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions and replacing or upgrading those with the newest generation of clean diesel technology.
Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum, highlighted the environmental benefits of new diesel technology during a panel discussion focusing on the best investments for states with the US$2.9 billion Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. ECOS is an organisation representing the nation’s top appointed environmental officials from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
