Pressure Systems International (PSI) has published its most recent issue of its Commercial Fleet Tire Digest, which it has titled Understanding Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Rulemaking – Phase II.”
In it, PSI breaks down the regulatory categories that will be included under Phase II, as well as five sub-categories that will be used when listing trailers.
“Trailers are recognized in the standard as an integral part of the tractor-trailer vehicle that significantly contributes to the emissions and fuel consumption of the tractor,” PSI writes. The new proposed rule spells out cost-effective trailer technologies that can offer significant carbon dioxide and fuel use reductions for the vehicle. These technologies include: aerodynamic devices, low rolling resistance tires, automatic tire inflation systems and lightweight components.”
