The article offers information on a statement regarding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's "Report to Congress on Black Report." The report cites the benefits and value of clean diesel technology in reducing black carbon emissions in the U.S. The elimination of fine particle emissions from new diesel vehicles and equipment is attributed to the switch to ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. Other topics in the report include the role of other sources of black carbon in developing countries.
