Report urges trailer, tire, natural-gas power standards for Phase II efficiency regs

In 2010 the National Research Council completed a Congressionally mandated report on the technologies and costs for improving fuel consumption in tractor-trailers, buses, commercial trucks and other heavy vehicles. The series of findings and recommendations from that report was in part incorporated into the first round of fuel-efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions standards for medium- and heavy-duty trucks issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 2011.

With the second round recently announced by the Obama Administration, the Research Council offered a series of recommendations in a newly released report as the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration and Environment Protection Agency develop rules aimed at the post-2018 time frame.
