Regulatory Impact Analysis: Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards and Highway Diesel Fuel Sulfur Control Requirements

This Regulatory Impact Analysis assesses the feasibility, costs, benefits, cost effectiveness, and other issues associated with the Environmental Protection Agency’s finalized program that sets new federal emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles and places limits on the level of sulfur in diesel fuel. The key results of this Regulatory Impact Analysis are discussed under the following headings: health and welfare concerns and emissions benefits; emissions standards feasibility; fuel standard feasibility; economic impact: diesel engines, gasoline vehicles, fuel sulfur requirements, and aggregate costs; cost effectiveness; cost-benefit analysis; regulatory flexibility analysis; and sulfur control in Alaska and U.S. Territories.
