Verified Technologies for SmartWay and Clean Diesel

Verified Technologies List for Clean Diesel

Help

Air pollutants:
For help on using the table below:

The list below provides information about diesel retrofit technologies that EPA has approved or conditionally approved for use in engine retrofit programs. It also shows the percent reduction (of verified or tested levels) that EPA will recognize for emission reductions for each technology.

Searchable/Sortable Table Instructions

The table default is to show 10 table entries at a time. To change the number of entries shown, click the drop-down arrow next to the number.

Image showing the number of entries you can display at a time in the table.

The column with the blue arrow indicates which column your table is sorted by. For example, if you saw the image below, the table would be sorted in ascending order on the "Technology Type" column.

Image indicating what column your table is sorted by.

To change which column your table is sorted by, click an arrow in another column. For example, if you wanted to sort by descending order on the "Applicable for" column in the image below, you would click the down arrow.

Image indicating how to sort your table using another column heading.

You can filter the table using the Search box. Start typing in the search box and your table will automatically display only rows that contain what you entered in the search box.
