Rules to Cut Emissions on 2014 to 2018 Trucks, Kent Says

Feb. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Canada is introducing new rules to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from heavy trucks built in 2104 to 2018, Environment Minister Peter Kent said in a statement.

The new rules, which will apply to full-size pick-ups, semi-trucks, garbage trucks and buses, will cut emissions by 19 megatons over the life of the vehicles and bring Canadian standards closer into line with the U.S.’s, Kent said today in a statement.
