  • Live polling session: The future of the US’s emissions industry Tim Cheyne - Vice President, Emissions, Argus Media
 In late 2018, both the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) announced efforts to further reduce emissions from heavy-duty vehicles. In the light of California’s authority to impose more stringent emissions standards than EPA, industry stakeholders have been focusing on opportunities for alignment and possibly a united standard.



In this live-polling interactive session, we will recap what been discussed on Day 1 and further explore the key issues affecting the US’s emissions industry and factors impacting the direction this industry is heading to.
