Cummins employs EPA 2010 technology in new European models

Christopher Goodfellow - 3 April 2012

Engine manufacturer Cummins says it has used experience gained meeting EPA 2010, including Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) with variable geometry turbocharging, in its new Euro VI engine models.

Neil Pattison, Director - Automotive Engine Business for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Cummins, said:  "To date we have over 330,000 EPA 2010 engines operating in the US.  By the time Euro VI comes in we will have over 3 years' experience of using all of the key technologies. We can use the combustion and after treatment architecture and tailor it for European market operations and duty cycles."

Euro VI emissions standards will become mandatory for new models on December 31, 2012 and one year later for all heavy-duty vehicles sold across Europe.
