The Transportation Industry has been committed to making cleaner emissions for over 50 years! The recent heavy-duty emission and fuel economy standards were released in 2011; however, the making of these current rules, and the regulations for 2018, have been in the works for decades. When did these standards and regulations begin? It all started with the Clean Air Act.
The Clean Air Act (CAA) is the comprehensive federal law that regulates air emissions from stationary and mobile sources. Congress passed the CAA in 1963, which lead to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1971. EPA continues to make an impact on today’s air quality movement by reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and improving fuel efficiency.
