20-4-4: Public Hearing to Consider the Proposed Amendments to the Regulation on the Commercialization of Alternative Diesel Fuels

 
The Board will consider proposed amendments to the Regulation on the Commercialization of Alternative Diesel Fuels (ADF). Staff is proposing to amend the ADF Regulation to reinforce the emissions certification testing requirements and require biodiesel additives and ADF formulations to be certified according to new certification procedures. The proposed amendments reinforce the originally intended efficacy of additives or alternative diesel formulations certified to mitigate potential oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions increases from the use of biodiesel. The Board will also consider adopting an addendum to a previously certified Environmental Analysis in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act.
