Public Hearing to Consider Proposed Regulation for In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicles
  Off-road diesel vehicles are responsible for nearly a quarter of the total diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions from all sources and nearly a fifth of the total oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions from mobile diesel sources. These emissions pose a significant health risk because of their contribution to toxic ambient PM and ozone, which can lead to increased mortality. The proposed regulation would require fleet owners to reduce their diesel PM and NOx emissions by using strategies that include fleet modernization, such as replacing older engines or vehicles with newer cleaner ones, and installation of exhaust retrofits that capture and destroy pollutants before they are emitted to the atmosphere.
