 Clean Automotive Technology Program

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.


Under this program, EPA facilitates collaboration with the automotive industry through innovative research to achieve ultra low-pollution emissions, increase fuel efficiency, and reduce greenhouse gases. By developing cost-effective technologies, the program encourages manufacturers to produce cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicles. This program focuses on:

  • Hydraulic hybrid research
  • Engine research
  • Alternative fuels research
  • Technical and analytical support

Also under the program, EPA is working with industrial partners to evaluate and develop EPA’s Clean Diesel Combustion Technology, which refines several existing technologies into a unique engine design that is simultaneously clean, efficient, and cost-effective. EPA collaborates with industry to maximize the viability of targeted technologies for commercial production through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements. The research is conducted at EPA’s National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
