Stricter Diesel Emissions

US administration fights for ecology.

US have proposed stricter emission requirements for off-road diesel vehicles in order to improve air quality.

The US administration issued an order to reduce emissions of particulate matter (soot) and nitrogen oxides by 90% by 2014.
They would also require the sulphur content of diesel fuel to be lowered by 99% by 2010.

Environmentalists have supported the US administration with this move.
