MTU America Clean Air Act Settlement

MTU America Inc., a subsidiary of Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG, paid a $1.2 million penalty to settle alleged Clean Air Act violations. The government alleged that MTU violated the Act by selling 895 non-road, heavy-duty diesel engines without valid certificates of conformity.
