Call to Climate Action: Today and Tomorrow, New-Generation Diesel Technology Reduces GHG Emissions

Del

Adoption of the newest diesel technologies delivers immediate, significant emissions reductions and climate benefits

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As the Global Climate Action Summit concludes in San Francisco, the emphasis will be on commitments and actions communities, cities, states and countries can take to tackle the climate challenge. The Diesel Technology Forum encourages the world’s leaders to embrace ALL greenhouse-gas-reducing technologies and consider policies that increase the adoption of the latest diesel engines, vehicles and equipment, which are proven to accelerate emissions reductions and carbon-cutting climate benefits.

“The diversity of economic and energy needs around the world is substantial. While the Summit has focused on options like ‘electrifying everything’ or switching to alternative forms of energy, many such approaches are aspirational or far outside the practical consideration for many cities and countries,” said Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Forum.

“We should all embrace innovation and opportunity in every form, and at the same time not lose sight of technologies that deliver climate progress today on a wide scale. Making progress on global climate commitments requires a mix of proven and existing technologies, working alongside new technologies. Among these must be the new generation of diesel power.

“Diesel powers one out of every two sectors in the global economy. At work on the streets, on jobsites, and in farm fields, mines and beyond, greenhouse gas emissions reductions are not a prospective goal, but are a daily reality, driven by the increased use of more advanced diesel engines, vehicles and equipment around the globe. 

“Even as manufacturers investigate alternative fuels and technologies, many sectors depend solely upon diesel engines and fuels. While technology demonstrations or small-scale releases of alternate technologies may take place, in many sectors no other fuel or technology options are expected to be commercially available on a wide scale, nor be able to deliver the unique combination of benefits that diesel possesses, for the foreseeable future.

“Fortunately, established technologies like diesel are not standing still. Thanks to continuous improvement in efficiency and performance, the newest generation of diesel engine – when deployed in conjunction with ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel – offers a proven, cost-effective, energy-efficiency, near-zero-emission power choice. New renewable diesel and biodiesel fuel options – drop-in replacements for conventional fossil-based diesel – mean that the newest diesel technologies can cut greenhouse gasses and other emissions even further.


“We encourage world leaders to consider policies to encourage the greater adoption of the latest clean diesel technologies out on the road, in the fields and on jobsites so as to accelerate progress today,” concluded Schaeffer.

Tackling climate change is a big challenge that requires many solutions, and diesel power is delivering:

  • 59 million tons of CO2 eliminated through the use of the latest generation of clean diesel trucks on the road in the United States since 2011.

  • 10 tons of CO2 saved by a single, new Class 8 diesel truck in one year, relative to previous generations of technology. Between 2016 and 2017, the United States experienced a 6 percent increase in purchases of new-generation diesel-powered commercial trucks.

  • 1 billion tons of CO2 expected to be reduced in the United States from the use of more fuel-efficient commercial trucks between 2021 and 2027, when more stringent fuel economy standards for trucks are phased in. Diesel is expected to be the primary power for these vehicles.

  • More American drivers are choosing bigger vehicles like pickups and SUVs. If every full-size pickup sold were a diesel, we could eliminate the same amount of CO2 as if 15 percent of all cars on the road today were EVs.
  • The City of San Francisco eliminated 63,000 tons of CO2 in a year by powering 606 diesel buses with renewable diesel fuel.
  • 17 million tons of black carbon emissions will be eliminated between 2000 and 2030, according to the state of California, from the rollout of clean diesel trucks and equipment.

  • By 2030 black carbon emissions attributable to diesel engines will almost be eliminated in California, thanks to the introduction of the newest generation of diesel technology, not due to fuel switching or diesel replacement.

  • Use of renewable diesel fuel – not electrification or natural gas – in California is the primary means by which the state is achieving its low carbon fuel mandates, as well as its progress toward the global climate action plan.
