A look at data, characteristics and the role of heavy-duty engines and equipment in the Midwest’s economy, including the agricultural, transportation, construction and industrial equipment sectors.
Exploring air quality, climate and energy profiles in key sectors of the region including transportation, ports, agriculture, construction, power generation and more.
This session was designed for anyone interested in learning more about trucks, construction and farm equipment use in EPA Regions 5 and 7 including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin. It explored the current population of heavy-duty vehicles and equipment and trends in these states, and current and future regulations that will impact the technology used in these key economic sectors and the clean air, climate and other considerations.
Attendees were able to look at data, characteristics and the role of heavy-duty engines and equipment in the Midwest’s economy, including the agricultural, transportation, construction and industrial equipment sectors. We also explored emissions profiles, fuel use including biofuels, new and existing technology and take a look at the trends and policies shaping the future.
Economic, environmental and energy considerations are emerging as top of mind issues in the wake of COVID-19. We looked at the current state of technology powering key sectors of the region’s economy, and where is it headed for the future.
