EPA Proposes Overhaul of Federal Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards
In recent discussions , it's expected that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is working to propose updates to the federal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions standards for passenger cars and light trucks.
These efforts are in response to several initiatives to secure pollution reductions through the model year 2026.
It's expected that the proposal would establish more stringent standards for each model year, starting in 2023. Through these efforts, the EPA will also use resources to update heavy-duty vehicle emission standards.
The EPA estimates that these standard overhaul initiatives, it will result in 2.2 billion tons of reduced carbon dioxide emissions through 2050.
