Heavy Duty Vehicle GHG Emissions & Fuel Efficiency in Canada Conference
Policy-makers, manufacturers and importers of new on-road heavy-duty vehicles, engines and components; manufacturers of air conditioning units will consider Canadian strategies for dealing with the environmental, economic, and community impact of the proposed regulations outlined to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from new on-road heavy-duty vehicles for model year 2014 and beyond.
Although mirroring the rules currently being proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), the proposed Canadian rules and standards will also consider the competitiveness, safety and unique aspects of the Canadian industry.
