Title: Equivalency Evaluation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Non-Road Diesel Engine Standards
Abstract: MSHA is reviewing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) standards for non-road diesel engines. The review will determine if certain EPA requirements in 40 CFR part 89 (Control of Emissions From New and In-Use Non-Road Compression-Ignition Engines), provide or can be modified to provide at least the same degree of protection as existing requirements in 30 CFR part 7, subpart E (Diesel Engines Intended for Use in Underground Coal Mines). This review is limited to the testing of Category B diesel engines as defined in 30 CFR 7.82 (Definitions).
