This article comments on issues related to the automobile industry as of November 2005. Regulations governing diesel exhaust emission by trucks will take effect in 2006. A reduction in the emission of a particulate matter and in nitrogen oxide emissions is required by the regulation. Speakers at the 2005 National Truck Equipment Association Truck Product Conference discussed the impact of the standards on the industry. The installation of heat shields was suggested if temperature-critical areas of the body are mounted too close to the hottest part of the exhaust system.
