The white paper contains illustrations showing the differences in National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) between November 2004 and April 2005. "Changes to diesel engines are being made in order to comply with the new standards," says Jim Iverson, senior applications engineer for Cummins Power Generation. "However, thanks to the success of technological refinements taking place today, the electrical power industry will continue to enjoy the performance advantages that diesel generators offer well into the foreseeable future."
