After reading the case study, Cummins is faced with quite the dilemma. Do they violate the EPA and face the penalty or do they follow regulations and upset the stakeholders? The case is examining the emissions standards for diesel engines. “EPA has adopted multiple tiers of emission standards. Most recently, we adopted a comprehensive national program to reduce emissions from nonroad diesel engines by integrating engine and fuel controls as a system to gain the greatest emission reductions. To meet these Tier 4 emission standards, engine manufacturers will produce new engines with advanced emission control technologies. Because the emission control devices can be damaged by sulfur, we have also adopted requirements for in-use diesel fuel to decrease sulfur levels by more than 99 percent. The resulting Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel has a maximum sulfur concentration of 15 parts per million.” (EPA, 2018). I believe the best choice for Cummins would be to follow EPA regulations.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
