EPA: $30 Million for Clean Diesel

 
The EPA is tackling diesel engines with new grants and innovations.

The EPA has awarded $30 million for clean diesel products.  The Diesel Emission Reduction Program, also known as DERA, is designed to replace, retrofit or repower older diesel-powered engines like marine vessels, locomotives, trucks and buses.

While diesel engines are versatile backbones in the American economy, they are also known for emitting large quantities of air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter.

New this year is an increased funding availability per award that will allow EPA to target larger engines used in marine vessels and locomotives, which will result in significant emissions reduced per engine.

DERA was enacted in 2005 and since it was first funded in FY 2008, EPA has awarded over 500 grants nationwide. These projects have reduced hundreds of thousands of tons of air pollution and saved millions of gallons of fuel.
