EPA and CARB targets Volvo trucks for breaking US air pollution law


The US Environmental Protection Agency is talks with Volvo to address a faulty emissions-control component that could cause the company's commercial trucks to exceed American air pollution limits.
Volvo said it discovered a component used to limit auto pollution is degrading faster than expected and could cause its vehicles to exceed limits for nitrogen oxide emissions.
The world's second-largest truckmaker warned that resolving the issue could have a material financial impact but said its analysis is still underway and it is too early to determine the cost, reports Bloomberg.
"EPA is aware of the situation involving excess emissions from Volvo heavy-duty trucks. Over the last few weeks, EPA and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) have been communicating with Volvo about the problem and are now continuing to meet with the company to develop plans to quickly address this situation," said an EPA spokeswoman.
