EPA investigating Navistar’s diesel-engine production

Truck and engine company could face $285 million in fines

Truck and engine company Navistar International Corp. just got pulled over by the environmental police.

Yesterday the Illinois-based company confirmed that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is investigating its diesel-engine production. In a Jan. 30 letter, the EPA informed Navistar that it is looking into whether 7,600 engines the company built in 2009 comply with the Clean Air Act. The company could face fines of up to $37,500 for each violation, which means it could end up paying as much as $285 million in fines.
