CARB hosts meetings, posts online calculator to explain truck rules

| 2/24/2011

The California Air Resources Board has posted an online calculator to help truck owners determine their compliance options for the state?s on road truck and bus regulation.

The on-road truck and bus regulation requires all trucks to meet 2010 model year engine emissions standards by the year 2023, and for fleets to begin meeting other diesel emission standards by 2014 through a variety of compliance options.

The calculator is available here.

Through the state?s local air quality districts, truckers also may attend ?one stop? events that help explain truck regulations being enforced in California.

Suppliers of exhaust retrofits and SmartWay-approved equipment plan to be in attendance. Financial grant application assistance is available by appointment.

The next such meetings are scheduled to be held March 5 in Riverside, CA; March 19 in San Mateo, CA; and March 26 in Fresno, CA.
