The article focuses on the new emission rules for tracks signed by President Barack Obama on May 2010 in the U.S. Such rules direct the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Dept. of Transportation (DOT) to focus on two areas, such as truck fuel economy and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The article reveals that the focus on the two designated areas helps reduce carbon emissions. It looks for other ways to meet the requirements like the use of new fuel injection systems.
