Truck fleet owners, diesel fuel suppliers, transit bus operators and government regulators are featured in a newvideo program that explains diesel engine retrofitting for industry audiences.
"The retrofitting of existing diesel engines to reduce emissions has been proven to be technically feasible as a means to provide clean air benefits," said Allen Schaeffer, the Diesel Technology Forum's executive director. "The program offers examples of successful retrofit programs and suggestions from a number of fleet owners and operators."
Entitled "The Quest for Clean Air," the video's target audiences include owners and operators of trucking, transit and school buses fleets, state and local government vehicle coordinators, air quality regulators, and elected and appointed officials, and all who are interested in implementing a clean diesel retrofit program for their organization.
The Diesel Technology Forum produced the video in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help support the EPA's campaign to retrofit 100,000 existing diesel engines. It features interviews with spokesmen from the New York City Transit Authority, BP, Applegate Trucking, the California Air Resources Board and the Sacramento Air Quality District, all focusing on diesel retrofit programs. .
