The article focuses on the implementation of tighter emission regulations. In January 2011, the Euro IIIB emissions regulations for diesel engines up to 560 kilowatts (kW) were introduced. On the other hand, Tier 3 standards have been applied by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with Tier 4 introduction scheduled for 2015. It was mentioned that Schenker Rail's purchase of the Gravita 10BB locomotives from Voith Turbo Lokomotivtechnik demonstrates the investment made by European railways to comply with stricter emission regulations.
