EPA Streamlines Conversion Rules

Posted on March 30, 2011

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it has updated rules making it easier for manufacturers to sell alternative fuel conversion systems. The changes, EPA said, reflect the agency’s efforts to encourage innovation and spur conversions that optimize clean air and clean energy technologies.

The revised procedures will vary based on the age of the vehicle or engine being converted. As opposed to a one-size fits all approach, EPA said its process is now based on whether a vehicle or engine is new, intermediate age or outside its expected useful life.
