Emissions and Clean Diesel Programs

We are a leader in the field of reducing locomotive emissions, working closely with the Environmental Protection Agency on emission standards for locomotives and marine vessels.

The proven 710 engine used in the WDG4 (GT46MAC) freight locomotives and the WDP4 (GT46PAC) passenger locomotives built in India can be upgraded with the latest technologies from EMD. These changes provide a major reduction in fuel costs while also simultaneously reducing oil consumption and emissions. 

New locomotive models designed by EMD for Indian Railways also take full advantage of these technology innovations to improve fuel efficiency.
