The next stage of EU emission standards comes into force in 2019 and 2020 for non-road diesel engines across the power spectrum. Machines for construction, agriculture, materials handling, industrial use and generators will all be in scope of these new standards.
The standards will continue the path towards reduction of particulate and NOx emissions. The main difference with Stage V is that for the first time there will be a limit on the number of particulates. In practice, this will drive the adoption of diesel particulate filters (DPFs) for engines in this power range.
