International engine retrofit program reduces emissions

Posted on January 17, 2003

International Truck and Engine Corp. announced a retrofit program that allows customers to reduce emissions from diesel engines in late-model vehicles to levels at or below those of natural gas engines. When used in conjunction with ultra low sulfur diesel fuel, the exhaust retrofit kits can reduce particulate and hydrocarbon emissions by more than 80%. Offered by the International Emissions Technology program, the exhaust retrofit kit is designed for electronically-controlled engines manufactured since 1994, as well as for diesel engines from other manufacturers' vehicles under certain conditions. The retrofit option is currently restricted to markets where ultra low sulfur diesel fuel is commercially available. The fuel will be mandated for national distribution under a new Federal rule that takes effect in mid-2006. International's program coincides with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's voluntary diesel retrofit program, which has a goal of 100,000 retrofits of diesel vehicles by the end of this year. The retrofit kits can be purchased from local International dealers. More information on the emission technology program is available at
