All NRLM engines and equipment must use this fuel (with some exceptions for older locomotive and marine engines). Diesel fuels are covered by the ASTM D975 standard. Specifications; Diesel Fuel Grades. A heavy distillate fuel, or a blend of distillate and residual oil, for low- and medium-speed diesel engines in applications involving predominantly constant speed and load. The Sxxx designation was first adopted in the D975-04 edition of the standard to distinguish grades by sulfur content. 2 distillate, D2069 covered four kinds of marine distillate fuels: DMX, DMA, DMB, and DMC and residual fuels (see also ISO marine fuel specifications): With the growing importance of alternative diesel fuels, standards have also been developed for biodiesel fuels and their blends. 0000001946 00000 n United States Environmental Protection Agency, Highway and nonroad diesel fuel standards, Locomotive and marine diesel fuel standards, Supporting documents for diesel fuel standards, Diesel standards applicable to individual states, Diesel standards applicable to U.S. territories, Fuels Registration, Reporting and Compliance Help, Civil Enforcement of the Renewable Fuel Standard Program. The diesel engines that power these vehicles support this system. 6, 7. From 2007 to 2014, low sulfur diesel fuel (specified at 500 ppm) and ULSD fuel was phased in for nonroad, locomotive, and marine (NRLM) diesel fuel. 0000003788 00000 n by ASTM specifications. These benefits are a result of a number of regulatory programs, including reducing sulfur levels in diesel fuel voluntary programs including the National Clean Diesel Campaign. EPA’s decades-long effort to reduce criteria pollutants, air toxics and other harmful emissions from diesel fuel used in transportation have resulted in significant health and environmental benefits while advancing technology, and minimizing cost. �CFI(��|v���w��"�������z�V1c��4t� ǂu^Z#ӛ�c�o�H��X�~K�Y��V�r���@{�)�NA*�Ę�iN���a�nc��턐�l�K�o_S��θ���Z����6~y{(�@z��h���ؿ�x4 ��i�\��i2��z�� ;i9�@N��nb�6�ߓI�/$��1��䠿���>D����|��p'�1�0`��/� � � endstream endobj 346 0 obj << /Filter /FlateDecode /Length 216 >> stream Historically, the sulfur content in diesel fuels for highway and nonroad vehicles was limited to 0.5% (wt.) 0000078195 00000 n DMB is typically used for Category 2 (5-30 liters per cylinder) and Category 3 (≥ 30 liters per cylinder) engines.
