Two new Cat engines become EPA-certified for 2007

| 12/8/2006

Caterpillar has received environmental certification for two of its 2007 engines - the C13 and C15, the company reported.

The Environmental Protection Agency must certify that engines are in compliance with 2007 emissions standards for particulate matter and nitrogen oxide emissions.

Caterpillar's ACERT technology, according to the company, reduced emissions through air management, precision combustion, advanced electronics and after-treatment exhaust and filtration systems.

The C15 has the highest rated torque and horsepower configurations for heavy trucks, buses, recreational vehicles and fire trucks, the company states. The C13 is used in heavy-duty lines.
