Cummins Inc. Agrees to Pay $2.1 Million Penalty for Diesel Engine Clean Air Act Violations [Aug 12,2011]

Cummins Inc. Agrees to Pay $2.1 Million Penalty for Diesel Engine Clean Air Act Violations The settlement requires Cummins to recall approximately 405 engines that were found to have reached the ultimate consumers without the correct exhaust after-treatment devices (ATDs) in order to install the correct ATDs. The U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today that Cummins Inc. will pay a $2.1 million penalty and recall 405 engines under a settlement agreement resolving alleged violations of the Clean Air Act. According to a complaint filed simultaneously with the settlement in federal court in the District of Columbia, between 1998 and 2006 Cummins shipped more than 570,000 heavy duty diesel engines to vehicle equipment manufacturers nationwide without pollution control equipment included, in violation of the Clean Air Act. This equipment, known as exhaust after-treatment devices (ATDs), controls engine exhaust emissions once the emissions have exited the engine and entered the exhaust system. Typical ATDs include catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters. Engine manufacturers must prove through testing that their engine designs meet EPA’s emissions standards and seek certificates of conformity. According to the complaint, Cummins tested the engines with the ATDs to meet the standards, but failed to include the ATDs with the engines when Cummins shipped the engines to the vehicle manufacturers. Instead, Cummins relied upon the vehicle manufacturers to purchase and install the correct ATDs. The United States alleges that the shipment of engines to vehicle manufacturers without the ATDs violates the Clean Air Act’s prohibition on the sale of engines not covered by certificates of conformity. The settlement requires Cummins to recall approximately 405 engines that were found to have reached the ultimate consumers without the correct ATDs in order to install the correct ATDs.These requirements are a critical part of the EPA’s program to reduce air pollution and secure clean air so that all Americans can breathe easie
