Cummins displays clean diesels at Diesel Technology Forum Event

Cummins Inc today announced that it is displaying clean-diesel technology at the Diesel Technology Forum's Clean Diesel Technology Tour being held in Sacramento, California, on April 18 and 19, 2007.

The Cummins display showcases Cummins Emission Solutions retrofit products, including a truck retrofit with Longview technology to reduce particulate matter (PM) emissions by 85 percent and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) by 25 percent.

A 2007 certified and compliant on-highway ISX engine powering a Kenworth W900 Class 8 tractor is on display - showcasing the company's commitment to delivering best-in-class performance and fuel economy for premium fleet customers.

The highlight of the Cummins display is the new Dodge Ram Heavy Duty pickup truck with the Cummins Turbo Diesel. This is the strongest, cleanest and quietest heavy-duty diesel pickup truck available, already compliant with the EPA 2010 requirements. It uses the Cummins-proven cooled EGR and VG Turbo, a diesel particulate filter and a breakthrough technology called a NOx Adsorber catalyst to reduce NOx and PM to 2010 levels. At the same time, horsepower and torque have been increased and noise reduced by 50 percent.

"As today's technology demonstration clearly shows, our industry is closer than ever to achieving its vision of a future filled with clean, dependable and fuel-efficient diesel-powered vehicles," said Ed Pence, Cummins Vice President and General Manager - Heavy-Duty Engine Business. "Innovative technologies developed by Cummins and others also are playing a critical role in making the diesel industry a leader in CO2 reduction in the transportation sector."
