Caterpillar manager named to EPA advisory group

EPA has appointed a Caterpillar manager to a committee that advises the agency on air quality issues.

John Campbell, general manager of engineering for Caterpillar’s large power systems division, will serve on EPA’s Clean Air Act Advisory Committee, which consists of 60 senior managers and experts representing industry, state and local governments, environmental and public interest groups, academic institutions, unions and trade associations. The policy committee advises EPA on issues related to implementing Clean Air Act amendments of 1990.

Campbell, who has worked for Caterpillar 39 years, was a leader of the research and development effort that led to the invention of the company’s ACERT technology, which Caterpillar is using to meet current and future emissions regulations for on- and off-highway engines.
