Big Diesel Visits CARB

11th Street between H and I was closed today while a display from the Diesel Technology Forum demonstrated new diesel technology. Several impressively large engines were on display, including this dazzling tomato red one.  

According to their website, California has 530,000 diesel vehicles out of a total registered population of 19,315,619. Annually, 3.8 billion gallons of diesel fuel is sold, the 2nd highest in the U.S.

In 2000, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) adopted the Diesel Risk Reduction Plan to reduce particulate matter emissions – 75 percent from diesel vehicles and engines by 2010, and 85 percent by 2020 (from year 2000 baselines). Since 2001, CARB has approved new regulations for a variety of diesel fleets.

In December 2010, CARB amended its original regulations for on and off-road heavy-duty diesel vehicles and equipment, delaying the implementation schedule. Regulations for in-use agricultural equipment are still planned.
