In 1963, the United States implemented regulations on auto pollution by passing the Clean Air Act, which was the first of its kind to control air pollution. In 1970, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was founded and began to pass legislation to regulate auto emissions. In 1973, the EPA created regulations on nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx). As a result, major motor companies were forced to change their engine models to adhere to the new guidelines while struggling to maintain efficiency and fuel usage.
