"In January 2001 and in June 2004, EPA finalized the Highway Diesel and
Nonroad Diesel Rules, respectively, which will implement more stringent
standards for new diesel engines and fuels. The rules mandate the use of
lower sulfur fuels in diesel engines beginning in 2006 for highway diesel
fuel, and 2007 for nonroad diesel fuel. These fuels will enable the use of
aftertreatment technologies for new diesel engines, which can reduce
harmful emissions by 90 percent or more. Aftertreatment technologies will
start phasing into the diesel sector beginning in 2007 for highway and 2011
for nonroad. These programs will yield significant, long-term benefits for
public health and the environment. "
