In the largest civil penalty ever for a Clean Air Act case, engine manufacturer Cummins, Inc. of Indiana has agreed to pay $1.675 billion in penalties to the EPA, $164 million in penalties and $175 million in mitigation efforts to the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and $33 million in penalties to the California Attorney General’s Office to resolve charges of deliberately circumventing vehicle emissions control equipment in their engines.  Cummins allegedly installed illegal defeat devices in the engines of more than 600,000 pickup trucks nationwide.  Now, the company must recall those engines and update the control software within three years, and fully offset the excess NOx emissions from those trucks by funding certain mitigation efforts.  DOJ; CA AG
